Correspondence *Email: †Email: Warm dense matter (WDM)–an exotic, highly compressed state of matter between solid and plasma phases is of high current interest, in particular for astrophysics and inertial confinement fusion. For the latter, in particular the propagation of compression shocks is crucial. The main unknown in the shock propagation in WDM is the behavior of the electrons since they are governed by correlations, quantum and spin effects that…

Density-Functional-Theory Perspective on the Non-Linear Response of Correlated Electrons Across Temperature Regimes
We explore a new formalism to study the nonlinear electronic density response based on Kohn-Sham density functional theory (KS-DFT) at partially and strongly quantum degenerate regimes. It is
