In summary, the person is looking for free e-print resources on Tensor Calculus and Density Functional Theory to teach themselves. They are recommended to check out a short intro to DFT on arXiv and a book on electronic structure calculations by Michael Springborg. The person is also advised to search for more recent DFT literature online. Additionally, a helpful intro to DFT by Burke and his group at Rutgers is suggested.

While I can't help with learning tensor calculus (I learned my tensors in class and through a number of agonizing problems), I can offer some help with DFT.

http://www.arxiv.org/abs/physics/9806013 A somewhat short intro to DFT. I will say if you're interested in a more thorough treatment, more modern applications of DFT, or a combination thereof you'll have to dig up the references mentioned. There is a reason why entire books on DFT have been written. A nice little book on electronic structure calculations that I happen to really like is*Methods of Electronic Structure Calculations* by Michael Springborg. It goes over both physics-oriented and chemistry-oriented methods, unlike some texts which only cover one or the other in any kind of detail.

I will say as an additional note that a great deal of DFT literature has been published since the mid 1980s and you can find quite a bit online in journal archives if you have access.

Good luck with DFT and may your experience be less traumatic than mine trying to learn it. :)

Added after edit: I should have remembered this intro to DFT by Burke and his group at Rutgers. You can find it http://dft.rutgers.edu/kieron/beta/index.html in PDF and PS format, along with a link to the Nobel lectures presented on DFT a few years back.

Hi there! I'm happy to help you with your search for e-prints on Tensor Calculus and Density Functional Theory. There are a few places you can check for free e-prints on these topics.

Firstly, you can try searching for them on arXiv.org. This is a popular pre-print server for scientific articles and papers, and they have a specific section for Tensor Calculus and DFT. You can also filter your search results to only show open access e-prints, which are available for free download.

Another option is to check for e-prints on the websites of universities or research institutes that specialize in these topics. Many of them have a section for publications or e-prints that you can access for free.

You can also try reaching out to researchers or professors in these fields and asking if they have any e-prints or resources they can share with you. Often, they are happy to help and provide valuable materials for self-teaching.

I hope these suggestions help you in your search. Best of luck in your learning journey!
