Clusters can be used as model of infinite crystal in electronic structure calculations, especially in the case of metal oxides, if they are embedded in a properly constructed potential. By introducing a new method for decomposing electron density of a crystal into contributions associated with pair-wise chemical bonds, this work suggests that relatively simple embedding potentials and small clusters can be sufficient to generate local orbitals that accurately represent bond orbitals in the infinite crystal.
