Even though the local density approximation in combination with a single-site dynamical mean field theory (LDA+DMFT) explains the Mott transition and the enhancement of the effective mass in real compounds, a numerical approach taking spatial correlations into account would be desirable. In this talk, we introduce a combination of LDA with dynamical cluster approximation (LDA+DCA) in the framework of the full-potential linear augmented plane-wave basis in WIEN2k and apply it to SrVO3. We compare our LDA+DCA results with LDA+DMFT as well as with angle-resolved photoemission spectra (ARPES). We find that LDA+DCA results compare better with ARPES than the LDA+DMFT results due to the inclusion of short-range spatial correlations.
