Pagination or Media Count:
A new approach to the quantum mechanical problem of the inhomogeneous electron gas is developed. The central quantities in this theory are the local electron density and various functionals of the density in which the properties of the system are incorporated. The lectures encompass the general theory and, as applications, new selfconsistent equations which are extensions of the Hartree and Hartree-Fock equations, as well as a discussion of elementary excitations. Preliminary numerical results also are presented. Author
