Overview of Density Functional Theory
In these lectures I will first offer some “warm-up exercises” for density functional theory (DFT), to help prepare the ground for the many interesting papers which will follow. After that I will present some very recent work which promises to allow density functional calculations for systems of very many (103 − 105) atoms.
