**The Condensed Matter Physics of QCD**

by Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 91

**Description**:

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

**The ABC of Density Functional Theory**

by

**Kieron Burke, et al.**-

**University of California, Irvine**

DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.
