The ABC of Density Functional Theory
by

Publisher: University of California, Irvine
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.
