  • John F. Dobson
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 837)


A semi-pedagogic discussion is given of the use of response theory and Time Dependent Density Functional Theory to describe van der Waals (dispersion) energies, within the context of Adiabatic Connection and the Fluctuation-Dissipation theorem.
