Abstract

The article examines application of the density functional theory to calculation of the reflectivity from shocked xenon. The values of the reflection coefficient were found for a fixed ionic configuration and for chosen values of temperature and density. To this end, it was necessary to perform averaging over a sampling of equilibrium configurations. This sampling was determined by the molecular dynamics method. The particle's trajectories were calculated by integrating classical Newtonian equations of motion with forces found from the Gellmann-Feynman theorem. The average divergence between the calculated and experimental results attains 4%. This implies a satisfactory consistency of theoretical and measured values for the reflection coefficient.
