Does anyone know of a book that will outline which quantum chemical methods are appropriate for what problems? I am trying to make informed choices before I start using computational resources. It is very difficult to figure out if a particular method is appropriate for the material and problem I am looking at. If there was a book that would outline which method to use for a given problem it would be extremely helpful. Say if I was going to use Density Functional Theory which methods PBE, B3LYP, MO6 etc are most appropriate for finding the minimum energy structure, the correct band gap, etc for material categories such as: polymers, small molecules, metals, perovskites etc. Or what calculations do most DFT methods typically fail at where wave function approaches would be a safer bet.
Perchance has anyone read:
Density Functional Theory edited by Eberhard K.U. Gross, Reiner M. Dreizler
