    I want to give to a large circle of the readers operating in quantum chem istry and solid-state physics, as, .ell as in different fields of many-body physics and its interfaces, this ebook deyoted to density useful thought written via my colleagues Eugene S. Kryachko and Eduardo Y. Ludena. Their how one can this concept are fairly various even though essentially either one of them are quantum chemical. Eugene S. Kryachko got here to strength density practical concept from the speculation of diminished density matrices, and Eduardo \'. Ludena dewloped previous the idea that of loges in quantum chemistry. Neyertheless, their past pursuits giw the prospect to consolidate and formulate strength density sensible idea in a unified and constant means, for my part.
