ABSTRACT
Background information on nineteenth-century Carl Friedrich Gauss is presented. According to the author, Gauss' "Disquisitiones Arithmeticae" stands next to Euclid's "Elements" as one of the most important treatises concerning pure mathematics, and number theory. Gauss, who was a mathematical prodigy, is often referred to as the "prince of mathematicians." Information on Glauss' birth and early life is discussed.

    We describe a formulation of electronic density functional theory using localized Gaussian basis functions for systems periodic in three dimensions (bulk crystals) or two dimensions (crystal slabs terminated by surfaces). Our approach generalizes many features of molecular density functional...
