Electron energy levels and charge densities for ThO2 and UO2 are calculated in a molecular cluster approximation, using spin unrestricted Hartree-Fock-Slater and relativistic Dirac-Slater models. Results compare favorably with X-ray photoelectron spectra and reveal similarities in chemical bonding with rare earth oxides.
