DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.

This is an overview of equilibrium statistical mechanics of classical fluids, with special applications to the structural and thermodynamic properties of systems made of particles interacting via the hard-sphere potential or related model potentials.

The development of methods of quantum statistical mechanics is considered in light of their applications to quantum solid-state theory. We discuss fundamental problems of the physics of magnetic materials and methods of quantum theory of magnetism.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter.
