What do six brides have to do with Density-Functional Theory? Discover it in this lecture, in which the essential ideas behind DFT are explained in three different non-technical ways. After this practical lecture, you will be able to understand the most important words in research papers that report on DFT calculations. This lecture was part of the introductory day of a Spring School on Computational Tools for Materials Science (2015, Ghent University).
