In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.

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.

A thorough introduction to the theoretical basis of density functional methods in a form which is both rigorous and yet concise. It is aimed for those who want to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the results of practical calculations.
