I wonder if anyone might save me several clicks and hours of scrolling and point me to a good recent survey/book on materials informatics to get me acquainted with the field?

    $\begingroup$ @AnibalBezerra that question is for DFT, does the answer have anything to do with Materials Informatics? $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 8, 2020 at 21:59
  • $\begingroup$ @NikeDattani, to me it does! I do consider DFT as Materials Informatics... $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 10, 2020 at 14:10

    $\begingroup$ @AnibalBezerra Informatics usually refers to tools for big data processing and interpretation, rather than the underlying method used to produce the data. You could apply informatics techniques to the results of many DFT calculations, but I wouldn't consider DFT itself a form of informatics. $\endgroup$
