Exact equations for correlation energy and kinetic energy correction functionals are derived in the time-dependent density functional theory. Hierarchies of equations are also obtained and approximate functionals are proposed by truncation of the hierarchies at different orders. Explicit relations for the correlation energy and its kinetic component along the adiabatic path are given in terms of powers of the moments of the electron density.
