I have used FEFF 8.4 in my diploma-thesis and now I'm writing some
\subsections about FEFF in order to give an overview of "the substructure"
(or in other words the models, algorithms, theories,... whereupon FEFF
bases) of FEFF. Can you give me some (3 or 4) catchwords regarding the
most important modells of FEFF, so that I get a direction for further
I'm a little bit confused with the several descriptions of FEFF and
whereupon it's based on (for example some expressions/catchwords I found):
ab initio self-consistent real space multiple scattering approach
all-electron, real space relativistic Green's function formalism
FMS based on LU or Lanczos algorithm
high-order path expansion based on the Rehr-Albers MS-formalism
Muffin-Tin Potential
SCF Hartree-Fock method
Dirac-Hara or Hedin-Lundquist exchange model

In all papers I found, the authors refer to FEFF shortly. Is there a paper
directly about FEFF?
I hope you understand my request. Thank you very much for your help and time.

sincerely yours,
