In this book, the focus is on the quantum transport of nanoscale devices. Within this context, the author succeeds in presenting analytical calculations, such as Green’s functions, density matrices and Wigner functions, and practical examples, which will be useful to all of those working on quantum transport in semiconductors. The target audience for this text is clearly advanced graduate students in physics and researchers working in modeling semiconductors properties, but anyone concerned with structure-property relationship of materials will profit from reading this book.
