Introduction to DFT calculations of electronic structure: Some do's and don'ts

Kieron Burke
University of California, Irvine (UCI)

I will explain what DFT is, why it works, and why it is a standard practical
approach to electronic structure problems. Useful references include a review
for anyone with a background in quantum mechanics[1] and recorded CECAM lectures on the theoretical underpinnings[2].
