PCCP is delighted to present its latest themed collection covering recent developments in Density Functional Theory with a balance between theory and applications. The issue was guest edited by David Tozer (Durham University, UK) and Michael Peach (Lancaster University, UK) and was published in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Density Functional Theory and its Applications (DFT2013) that took place at Durham University, UK, from 9–13 September 2013.
The outside front cover features Dye Chemistry with time-dependent density functional theory, a perspective article from Adèle Laurent, Carlo Adamo and Denis Jacquemin.
