Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter

Publisher: Oxford University
Number of pages: 42

I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas rather than mathematical formalism. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.

Book cover: The Fundamentals of Density Functional TheoryThe Fundamentals of Density Functional Theory
by - University of Technology Dresden
A thorough introduction to the theoretical basis of density functional methods in a form which is both rigorous and yet concise. It is aimed for those who want to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the results of practical calculations.

In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.

by - University of California, Irvine
DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.
