Time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is a formally exact approach to the time-dependent electronic many-body problem which is widely used for calculating excitation energies. We present a survey of the fundamental framework, practical aspects, and applications of TDDFT. This paper is mainly intended for nonexperts (students or researchers in other areas) who would like to learn about the present state of TDDFT without going too deeply into formal details.
