Density functional theory: Further applications Academic Article uri icon


  • Density functional techniques are available for the calculation of the molecular and electronic structures of ground state systems. Techniques of this kind are also applied extensively in the study of classical liquids, where applications cover a broad spectrum ranging from fluids at interfaces to theories of freezing and nucleation. The area of nuclear physics is still in a very early stage of development in the use of DFT, mainly because there is not yet a complete theory, as there is in the molecular and atomic cases. This chapter has focused on the theoretical aspects of other applications not related to the use of the Kohn-Sham procedure for electronic systems, with the hope that a better understanding of the problems and successes in the respective areas would help in the development of improved functionals. 1995, Elsevier B.V.
