Scope of the ISSP International Workshop/Symposium:

Since the discovery of Hohenberg-Kohn theorems in 1964, Density Functional Theory (DFT) has experienced continuous development in its foundations, and has been applied to many problems in condensed matter physics and chemistry boosted by developments in computer technologies. Now DFT is attracting much wider attention in physics, chemistry, and biology and its frontiers are facing with strong-correlation and time-dependent (excited-state) phenomena. How to lay foundations of these new challenging schemes for treating time-dependent and/or strongly-correlated problems and how to apply them with help of ever increasing computer power are the most important issue. In view of this situation, the workshop focuses on foundations and applications of the new frontiers of DFT and lets all the participants to share the knowledge and problems for the future breakthrough in this field.

Anticipated topics to be discussed include:
(1) Density Functional Theory (DFT)
(2) Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (TDDFT)
(3) Methods for the DFT and/or TDDFT calculations
(4) Large-scale applications to materials
