**The ABC of Density Functional Theory**

by Kieron Burke, et al.

**Publisher**: University of California, Irvine 2007**Number of pages**: 208

**Description**:

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.
