**Modern Computational Methods in Solids**

by Adrian Feiguin

**Publisher**: University of Wyoming 2009**Number of pages**: 99

**Description**:

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter, with extra degrees of complexity that make the problems analytically intractable to some extent. Therefore, it will also serve as a complementary condensed matter course.

**The ABC of Density Functional Theory**

**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.
