The Hartree-Fock method in the density functional formalism is applied to calculate the self-consistent electron densities in metal vacancies. Comparison shows that the mere Thomas-Fermi method describes fairly well the electron density over the whole metallic range. The calculated annihilation characteristics of positions trapped at vacancies agree well with experimental results. The formation energies of vacancies are found to be sensitive to the lattice model.
