The time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) provides a unified description of the structure and reaction. The linear approximation leads to the random-phase approximation (RPA) which is capable of describing a variety of collective motion in a harmonic regime. Beyond the linear regime, we present applications of the TDDFT to nuclear fusion and fission reaction. In particular, the extraction of the internuclear potential and the inertial mass parameter is performed using two different methods. A fusion hindrance mechanism for heavy systems is investigated from the microscopic point of view. The canonical collective variables are determined by the adiabatic self-consistent collective coordinate method. Preliminary results of the spontaneous fission path, the potential, and the collective mass parameter are shown for 8Be→ α+ α.
