The Fundamentals of Density Functional Theory
by Helmut Eschrig
Publisher: University of Technology Dresden 2013
Number of pages: 224
A thorough introduction to the theoretical basis of density functional methods in a form which is both rigorous and yet concise. It is aimed not only for those who are already or are going to be active in the field, but also for those who just want to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the results of practical calculations.

The development of methods of quantum statistical mechanics is considered in light of their applications to quantum solid-state theory. We discuss fundamental problems of the physics of magnetic materials and methods of quantum theory of magnetism.

There are fundamental relations between two vast areas of physics: particle physics and cosmology (micro- and macro-worlds). The main goal of this book is to establish and define the connection of these two fields with condensed matter physics.

Percolation theory is the simplest model displaying a phase transition. The aim of the percolation theory course is to provide a challenging and stimulating introduction to a selection of topics within modern theoretical condensed matter physics.

This text summarizes the experimental frontier of ultra cold fermionic gases. It is based on three lectures which one of the authors gave at the Varenna summer school describing the experimental techniques used to study ultracold fermionic gases.
