Density functional theory (DFT)
Lu Jeu Sham's family was from Fuzhou, Fujian, but he was born in British Hong Kong on April 28, 1938. He received his Bachelor of Science from Imperial College London in 1960 and his PhD in physics from the University of Cambridge in 1963.
Sham is most well known for his work on density functional theory (DFT) with Walter Kohn, which resulted in the Kohn–Sham equations of DFT. The Kohn–Sham method is widely used in materials science. Kohn received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1998 for the Kohn–Sham equations and other work related to DFT.
