John Perdew and collaborators showed that the nonrelativistic periodic table becomes perfectly periodic in the limit of large atomic number [a], constructed a fully nonlocal correction to the random phase approximation [b], and showed that the meta-generalized gradient approximation (meta-GGA), unlike the simpler GGA, can give an accurate simultaneous description of the lattice constants and surface energies of transition metals and the desorption energies of molecules from transition-metal surfaces [c].
