Title: How accurate are static polarizability predictions from density functional theory? An assessment over 132 species at equilibrium geometry

Static polarizabilities are the first response of the electron density to electric fields, and offer a formally exact measure of the accuracy of excited states. We have developed a benchmark database of polarizabilities and have assessed the performance of 60 popular and recent functionals in predicting them.
