Basic density-functional theory - an overview

von Barth, Ulf LU (2004) In Physica Scripta T109. p.9-39
Abstract
In these notes I have given a personally flavored expose of static density-functional theory (DFT). I have started from standard many-body physics at a very elementary level and then gradually introduced the basic concepts of DFT. Successively more advanced topics are added and at the end I even discuss a few not yet published theories. The discussion represents many of the personal views of the author and there is no attempt at being comprehensive. I fully realize that I am often 'unfair' in treating the achievements of other researchers. Many topics of standard DFT are deliberately left out like, e. g., time-dependence, excitations, and magnetic or relativistic effects. These notes represent a compilation of a series of lectures given at... (More)
