Electronic structure models like density functional theory have been widely used in various areas. In this talk, we will discuss some recent progress in the mathematical study of these models. Emphasis will be put on the derivation of macroscopic continuum theory (nonlinear elasticity, macroscopic Maxwell equations, etc) from density functional theory.
