General Density Functional Theory

  • W. Kohn
  • P. Vashishta
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)

Abstract

Over the course of the last 15 years density functional theory (DFT)* has evolved as a conceptually and practically useful method for studying the electronic properties of many-electron systems. In this chapter we present a critical review of the general theory together with some illustrative examples.† More complete discussions of several important areas of application may be found in other chapters of this book.
