Learn Density Functional Theory

Density Functional Theory (DFT) is the choice method of calculating quantum chemistry today. Here, we've assembled many review articles from our group as well as the ABC of DFT.

###### ABC of DFT

Learn the ABCs of DFT. These are being turned into a delta version right now. They should be particularly good for users, who wish to understand the fundamental theory in a little more depth, in order to make intelligent decisions about which calculations to run. They should also be useful for developers, in allowing new students and postdocs to teach themselves basic DFT any time, on their own.

Entire book, but with pieces missing and needing rewriting. WATCH OUT, its 104 pages! For solutions to the exercises, please email Kieron at kieron@uci.edu. These notes may not be reproduced for anything other than individual use. Copyright by Kieron Burke.
