Overview

Used in materials science, physical chemistry and physics, density functional methods provide a unifying description of electronic properties applicable to all materials while also giving specific information on the system under study. A large number of very different materials and systems (atoms, molecules, macromolecules, clusters, bulk solids, surfaces and interfaces) are presently being studied with methods based on density functional formalism. Density Functional Methods in Chemistry and Materials Science reports the results of this research. This book will be of particular interest to those research materials science from a theoretical standpoint. This work will demonstrate how the formalism has become a methodology leading to useful information on structural and electronic properties of a broad range of materials.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
These 12 contributions describe the use of density-functional methods to study the properties of such systems as small molecules, clusters, polymers, alloys, defect-free crystals, and impurities in crystals. The authors discuss properties that are dictated by both electron and spin distributions. Topics include transition metal chemistry and catalysis, spin-coupled transition metal dimer and tetramer complexes, and the calculation of chemical processes in solution.
