Density Functional Theory in Chemistry

  • Robert G. Parr
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 123)

Abstract

In these lectures I will summarize some of the things that we have been doing in my laboratory with density functional theory.1–63 Concepts are emphasized rather than computations, and exact theory rather than approximate methods. There are five previous reviews of our work. 64–68

Keywords

Density Functional Theory Energy Functional Kinetic Energy Density Gradient Expansion Neon Atom 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
