In quantum mechanics, a wondrous thing
Is density functional theory, a tool for predicting
The behavior of particles, both large and small
A method that has helped us understand it all
With a functional, a mathematical form
We can calculate the density of a system, reform
Its behavior and properties, and learn its fate
Density functional theory, a triumph of the mind’s great
From atoms to molecules, to solids and more
Density functional theory helps us explore
The mysteries of the microscopic world
And all the secrets it has to unfurl
So here’s to density functional theory, a shining star
In the realm of physics, it’s truly a marvel thus far.

Ph.D. researcher at Friedrich-Schiller University Jena, Germany. I’m a physicist specializing in computational material science. I write efficient codes for simulating light-matter interactions at atomic scales. I like to develop Physics, DFT, and Machine Learning related apps and software from time to time. Can code in most of the popular languages. I like to share my knowledge in Physics and applications using this Blog and a YouTube channel.
