The Thomas-Fermi model is generalized using the maximum Rényi entropy principle. A simple relation between the dimension and the Rényi parameter is emphasized. The Rényi entropy of atoms is approximately expressed with the logarithm of the kinetic energy. An approximate relation between the value of the density at the nucleus and the kinetic energy is found.
