Kohn-Sham wave functions yielding the Hartree-Fock ground-state densities of alkaline-earth and noble-gas atoms are calculated. From the Kohn-Sham wave functions the corresponding noninteracting kinetic energies and the exchange energies are calculated according to the density-functional definition. The difference between the density-functional and the Hartree-Fock exchange energies for a given electron density is found to be surprisingly small. This justifies, at least for the systems studied… Expand
