Surface spectral functions are calculated for very thin metal slabs, containing both collective modes and single-particle excitations. This is achieved by calculating the surface dielectric function ε_p(Q,ω) for the thin jellium slab in the density functional theory and random phase approximation, using Kohn-Sham wavefunctions within the local density approximation, from which we derive the surface spectral functions. Influence of the slab thickness on the excitation spectra is studied, and the dispersion relations of the collective modes are obtained. Slightly modified fast converging method for the calculation of the Kohn-Sham wavefunctions is presented.
