Results for the #DFT2011 popularity poll: and the winner is...

Last year we held the second edition of the annual popularity poll for density functionals, between June 1st and October 1st; this week we have published the news-item about the poll results, and constructed the PACO2011 functional from these.

For the second year in a row, the winner was PBE0, and not the widely used B3LYP (which came second). The news-item shows all the data, in a nice format.

And just a curiosity: the news-item has been downloaded more than 1000 times within the first two days.
