(a)–(c) Decay rate per core hole as a function of the number of valence electron pairs n val(n val − 1)/2 on the atom at which the core hole is located, estimated from the respective core ionized state wave function via (a) Mulliken and (b) Löwdin population analysis, as well as via (c) the integrated electron density within a sphere of radius r = 1.9a 0) around the core hole. (d) Decay rate per core hole and per valence electron pair, where the number of valence electrons n val was estimated as in Fig. 1(c). For all different methods for estimating n val the decay rate ΓK and ΓKK is roughly proportional to n val(n val − 1)/2.
