This part considers the underlying theory and practical aspects of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) and time-dependent Hartree–Fock (TDHF), including:

  • The foundations of these theories

  • The calculation of spectra, including a discussion on the random phase approximation (RPA) and Tamm-Dancoff approximation (TDA)

  • Exercises, with a discussion on the many challenges of TDDFT (to be added)

This is currently being worked on, and a thorough discussion on single-reference methods can be found here.
