One of the biggest goals in nuclear physics is to understand a variety of phenomena in many-nucleon systems based on a microscopic framework in a unified way. In recent years, (Time-Dependent) Density Functional Theory, (TD)DFT, has been extensively applied as a powerful tool, which allows us to describe not only structure and dynamics of atomic nuclei, but also properties of neutron stars. In the Lecture, giving a brief overview of basics of nuclear physics, I will explain the concepts of the density functional theory. Then, I will present selected examples of recent studies of quantum many-body dynamics in finite nuclei as well as neutron stars.
