Abstract

The articles of this section cover themes that we expect to usefully complement the broad collection of topics presented in this part of the Handbook (MTM). When matching the contents of other MTM sections, they provide additional information and new perspectives. Also comprehensive reviews are presented of well-established theories, namely time-dependent density-functional theory and the modern theories of polarization and orbital magnetization, especially including recent formulations. Moreover, this Plenary Topic section establishes further connections (and thus reading support) to the chapters in the companion Set on Applications (ACE).
