The ABC of Density Functional Theory
by Kieron Burke, et al.
Publisher: University of California, Irvine 2007
Number of pages: 208
DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Nor is it simply a method of parametrizing empirical results. Density functional theory is a completely different, formally rigorous, way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.

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.

There are fundamental relations between two vast areas of physics: particle physics and cosmology (micro- and macro-worlds). The main goal of this book is to establish and define the connection of these two fields with condensed matter physics.

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