Graphs of monovacancy formation energy ( ) versus the parameter, , of Ashcroft's empty-core model potential (AECMP) and nine different exchange and correlation functions (ECF) are shown for two different group-IIa divalent fcc metals (Ca and Sr) and seven group-VIII divalent fcc metals in an active valence state (γ-Fe, β-Co, Rh, Ir, Ni, Pd and Pt). The criterion used is that is greater than the Bohr radius. There is a systematic increase and decrease in the fitted value of , and the calculated value of , respectively, in going from one ECF to other, as follows: Sham
