I'm currently learning density functional theory in quantum mechanics, and I learn that given a time independent Schrodinger Equation, we can use SCF method to get the eigenfunction of the Schrodinger equation. But I don't know too much about functional analysis, and I really want some simple example that I can solve it by hand to built some intuition for this method. Thanks in advance!

  • $\begingroup$ @Mark Thanks! But what I mean is that is there some really simple examples that I can solve by hand, cause I really want to build some intuitions. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2017 at 6:10
  • $\begingroup$ I understand, this is mostly for other readers of stackexchange who may not be familiar and want to look into it casually. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2017 at 6:11
