The Fundamentals of Density Functional Theory
by Helmut Eschrig
Publisher: University of Technology Dresden 2013
Number of pages: 224
A thorough introduction to the theoretical basis of density functional methods in a form which is both rigorous and yet concise. It is aimed not only for those who are already or are going to be active in the field, but also for those who just want to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the results of practical calculations.

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as the Mott-Hubbard transition in optical lattices, etc.

The aim of this text is to introduce a variety of optical microscopy techniques available to soft matter researchers, starting from basic principles and finishing with a discussion of the most advanced microscopy systems.

These notes cover the formalism of correlation functions and perturbation theory, adiabatic continuity and broken symmetry -- the most important basic principles of condensed matter physics, and modern problems and more recent calculational tools.
