Editorial Reviews

Density functional theory is an approach to predicting the behavior of many interacting particles, and a major application is in the study of many-electron systems. The 26 lectures draw from computational chemistry, condensed matter physics, and other realms to report recent developments. After introductory material, they consider groundstate energy functionals; excited state, time-dependent theories, and the Van der Waals interaction; and special systems. Among specific topics are the exchange-correlation hole, adiabatic coupling in the helium and beryllium series, hydrodynamics in the Thomas-Fermi-Dirac-von- Weizs<:a>cker approximations, and the airy gas as an edge electronic structure. Four additional poster papers are represented by abstracts on such topics as calculations of magnetic interactions in magnetic metal alloys via the LSDF approach, and quantitative electron momentum spectroscopy of solids.
