Alternative techniques are presented for the evaluation of the electron momentum density (EMD) of crystalline systems from ab initio linear combination of atomic-orbitals calculations performed in the frame of one-electron self-consistent-field Hamiltonians. Their respective merits and drawbacks are analyzed with reference to two periodic systems with very different electronic features: the fully covalent crystalline silicon and the ionic lithium fluoride. Beyond one-electron Hamiltonians, a post-Hartree–Fock correction to the EMD of crystalline materials is also illustrated in the case of lithium fluoride. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
