##### Abstract

An exchange-correlation energy functional involving fractional power of the one-body reduced density matrix [S. Sharma, J. K. Dewhurst, N. N. Lathiotakis, and E. K. U. Gross, Phys. Rev. B 78, 201103(R) (2008)] is applied to finite systems and to the homogeneous electron gas. The performance of the functional is assessed for the correlation and atomization energies of a large set of molecules and for the correlation energy of the homogeneous electron gas. High accuracy is found for these two very different types of systems.
