This book is a rigorous, unified account of the fundamental principles of the density-functional theory of the electronic structure of matter and its applications to atoms and molecules. Containing a detailed discussion of the chemical potential and its derivatives, it provides an understanding of the concepts of electronegativity, hardness and softness, and chemical reactivity. Both the Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham and the Levy-Lieb derivations of the basic theorems are presented, and extensive references to the literature are included. Two introductory chapters and several appendices provide all the background material necessary beyond a knowledge of elementary quantum theory.

Robert G. Parr and Yang Weitao are both at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.Review:
"The theory of atoms, molecules and solids is largely dependent on good approximate solutions to appropriate quantum mechanical many-electron systems. Thus the appearance in recent years, of a new practical way to generate such solutions has met with considerable interest. The method is the density-functional method (DFT) in the local density approximation (LDA). . . . R.G. Parr and W. Yang are experienced professionals in this area . . . Their book is a thorough and solid introduction to the DFT. . . . I found the book well written, accurate and helpful. I recommend it." --Annual Nuclear Energy
