The response of an interacting many-particle system to a time-dependent external field can usually be treated within linear response theory. Due to rapid experimental progress in the field of laser… Expand

Density functional theory is a rapidly developing branch of many-particle physics that has found applications in atomic, molecular, solid state and nuclear physics. This text describes the conceptual… Expand

We report on the background, current status, and current lines of development of the octopus project. This program materializes the main equations of density-functional theory in the ground state,… Expand

A density-functional formalism comparable to the theory of Hohenberg, Kohn and Sham is developed for electronic systems subject to time-dependent external fields. The formalism leads to a set of… Expand

Part I Theory and Experiment - Why We Need TDDFT.- Part II Basic Theory.- PartIII Advanced Concepts.- Part IV Real-Time Dynamics.- Part V Numerical Aspects.- Part VI TDDFT vs Other Theoretical… Expand

This article discusses how TDDFT is much broader in scope, and yields predictions for many more properties, and discusses some of the challenges involved in making accurate predictions for these properties.Expand

A one-dimensional model of the H(2)(+) molecule in a laser field shows the usefulness of the exact TDPES in interpreting coupled electron-nuclear dynamics: it is shown how features of its structure indicate the mechanism of dissociation.Expand
