The electronic structure of positively charged sodium cluster with 59 atoms and negatively charged sodium cluster with 57 atoms (both having 58 electrons) have been studied using an ab initio molecular dynamics method. Although the geometries of both clusters are nearly spherical, the results show differences in the electronic shells.
