Abstract: We present a practical and accurate density functional for theexchange-correlation energy of electrons in two dimensions. The exchange partis based on a recent two-dimensional generalized-gradient approximation derivedby considering the limits of small and large density gradients. The fully localcorrelation part is constructed following the Colle-Salvetti scheme and aGaussian approximation for the pair density. The combination of theseexpressions is shown to provide an efficient density functional to calculatethe total energies of two-dimensional electron systems such as semiconductorquantum dots. Excellent performance of the functional with respect tonumerically exact reference data for quantum dots is demonstrated.
