In the high-density limit the exchange energy easily overcomes the correlation energy in both two- and three-dimensional electron liquids. It is therefore reasonable to inquire if the class of exchange driven instabilities first discussed by Overhauser within the Hartree-Fock theory could be of relevance in this limit. Our analysis shows that this is not the case at least for distorted states represented by a single Slater determinant.
