Brief Introduction to Density Functional Theory

  • John F. Dobson
  • Mukunda P. Das

Abstract

The physics of many interacting particles is notoriously difficult. The attraction of density functional theory is that it facilitates approximate calculations on many-body systems without requiring the construction of many-body wavefunctions or their equivalent. Instead one extracts the needed information from a one-body quantity, the number density. While density functional methods can be applied to many systems such as classical fluids, nuclei and thermal ensembles, this book is principally devoted to quantum states of many-electron systems. All of the articles are relevant to quantum chemistry and/or condensed matter physics.
