Description:
A thorough introduction to the theoretical basis of density functional methods in a form which is both rigorous and yet concise. It is aimed not only for those who are already or are going to be active in the field, but also for those who just want to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the results of practical calculations.

In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.
