Within the framework of LCAO-MO, the localized molecular orbital was defined and the corresponding localized work functions for closed, capped and open-ended SWNTs were calculated. It was found that the localized molecular orbital and localized work function are sensitive to the morphology of carbon nanotubes as like local density of states.
