Table 1 Average occupation of the 5f states in δ-Pu.

The occupation of the 5f states in δ-Pu is shown as calculated by DMFT and measured by RXES (13) and core-hole photo-emission spectroscopy (CHPES) (12), respectively. We also list the corresponding effective moment μeff of the three 5f states based on the intermediate coupling scheme (21).
