**The Fundamentals of Density Functional Theory**

by Helmut Eschrig

**Publisher**: University of Technology Dresden 2013**Number of pages**: 224

**Description**:

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.
