Introductory resources

This page collects a bunch of articles, lecture notes, textbooks and recordings related to density-functional theory (DFT) and DFTK. Most introductory aspects of the code and the theory behind it are also covered in the "Getting started" section of the documentation, e.g. Periodic problems and plane-wave discretisations, Introduction to density-functional theory or Self-consistent field methods.

Since DFTK aims for an interdisciplinary audience the level and scope of the referenced works varies. They are roughly ordered from beginner to advanced. For a list of articles dealing with novel research aspects achieved using DFTK, see Publications.
