The study of the electronic structure of materials is at a momentous stage, with the emergence of new computational methods and theoretical approaches. This volume provides an introduction to the field and describes its conceptual framework, the capabilities of present methods, limitations, and challenges for the future. Many properties of materials can now be determined directly from the fundamental equations of quantum mechanics, bringing new insights into critical problems in physics, chemistry, and materials science.

Review quote

'The book places electronic structure in the context of elementary issues in physics, while at the same time emphasising its role in providing useful information on the properties of materials unified exposition of the basic theory and methods of electronic structure, together with instructive examples of practical computational methods and actual applications aim is to serve graduate students and scientists involved in research while acting as supplementary material for courses on condensed matter physics and material science Examples of problems are included in each chapter to bring out salient points and challenge the reader.'
