Self-consistent mean-field models for nuclear structure , M. Bender, P.H. Heenen, and P.G. Reinhard, Rev. Mod. Phys. 75, 121 (2003). Review article by three nuclear DFT practitioners focusing on applications of non-relativistic Skyrme EDFs (with some discussion of relativistic functionals) to nuclear structure.
A primer in density functional theory, Fiolhais, Nogueira, and Marques (Editors), Springer Verlag (2003). The first chapter by Perdew and Kurth gives a very nice overview of semi-local (LDA + gradients) functionals in Coulomb systems. The second chapter by Engel gives a nice introduction to the optimized effective potential (OEP) approach where one constructs orbital-dependent functionals using ab-initio many-body theory.
The Nuclear Many-Body Problem, P. Ring and P. Schuck, Springer-Verlag (2000) - A comprehensive review of the techniques used in nuclear structure. Many of the topics of the school are covered in chapters 4-8, 10, 11.
Density Functional Theory of Atoms and Molecules, R.G. Parr and W. Yang, Oxford University Press (1989) - A pedagogical yet complete introduction to density functional theory in electronic structure theory. Chapters 1-3, 7, 8 will be discussed during the school.
Quantum Theory of Finite Systems, J.-P. Blaizot, P. Ripka, The MIT Press (1985) - Not easy, but an absolute reference, especially for mean-field methods (with and without pairing), two-body Hamiltonians, etc. Unfortunately not published anymore.
Handbook of mathematical functions, M. Abramowitz and I. A. Stegun, National Bureau of Standards Applied Mathematics Series (1972) - A comprehensive handbook of mathematical functions and methods, including orthogonal polynomials, numerical quadratures, discretization schemes, etc.
