On the dogmatic spirit we discuss the issue applicability of
adiabatic functional also in strong high frequency
laser-fields. On the pragmatic side we explain the necessity of
using a TUNED range-separated time-dependent and time
independent density functional theory for difficult systems.
For DFT we bring examples for symmetric cationic radicals, such
as H2+, He2+,
(H2O)2+ and
(C6H6)2+ and for TDDFT we
discuss charge transfer excitations as examples. A tuned range
parameter theory is also capable of treating a variety of
