Special issue "50th anniversary of the Kohn-Sham theory-advances in density functional theory"

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


The properties of many materials at the atomic scale depend on the electronic structure, which requires a quantum mechanical treatment. The most widely used approach to make such a treatment feasible is density functional theory (DFT), the advances in which were presented and discussed during the DFT conference in Debrecen. Some of these issues are presented in this Special Issue.
