Density-functional theory in the local-spin-density approximation has been applied to calculate the energy positions of law-lying resonance (autoionization) states of neutral atoms and positive ions. This method is very convenient fur a quick, approximate prediction of excitation energies in collision experiments. [S1050-2947(99)05401-3].
