This is the first course in a series on quantum mechanical calculations of materials. We will talk about the density functional theory, which is successfully used to calculate material properties in materials science, biochemistry, to create new drugs, solar panels, batteries, and much more. This course is purely theoretical, but it is important for further practical courses in quantum mechanical calculations.
