Time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is based on a set of ideas and theorems quite distinct from those governing ground-state DFT, but emphasizing similar techniques. Today, the use of TDDFT is rapidly growing in many areas of physics, chemistry and materials sciences where direct solution of the Schrödinger equation is too demanding. This is the first comprehensive, textbook-style introduction to the relevant basics and techniques.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory represents a concise overview of the field … . this is a well-structured text, with a common set of notations and a single comprehensive and up-to-date list of references, rather than just a compilation of research articles. Because of its clear organization, the book can be used by novices (basic knowledge of ground-state DFT is assumed) and experienced users of TD-DFT, as well as developers in the field." (Anna I. Krylov, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 129 (21), 2007)

"The reviewed book is a broad reflection of the current state of the TD DFT and summary of its achievements since 1984. It is naturally partitioned into the chapters that outline the formal theoretical approach of the TD DFT … . To summarize, the book ‘Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory’ is a valuable book for those, PhD students in particular, who are interested in the whole spectrum of problems related to density functional theory and its broad applications to many-body quantum theory." (Eugene Kryachko, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1110 (12), 2007)
