A recently developed accurate scheme for converting the single-particle eigenenergies of the density functional theory into electron binding energies is used to compute the spectra of electron binding energies in Mg, Mg, Mg, and Mg. The computations are performed for different isomeric forms of the clusters using both pseudopotential and all-electron treatments. The results are compared with the data derived from electron photodetachment experiments, and the role of the different isomers in the interpretation of these data is examined.
