About the Authors
  • Including some of the most advanced concepts of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics, this book presents the conceptual framework underlying the atomistic theory of matter. No prior acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed. Many numerical examples provide concrete illustrations, and the corresponding MATLAB codes can be downloaded from the web. Videostreamed lectures linked to specific sections of the book are also available through web access.

    • Assuming no prior background, discusses advanced concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics which are key for the analysis and design of nanoscale devices
    • Contains many numerical examples, with corresponding MATLAB code available for the Web; problems are also included, solutions to which are available to instructors by e-mailing solutions@cambridge.org
    • Videostreamed lectures, keyed to the text, also available from the Web

    Reviews & endorsements

    "In recent years, scientists have developed a powerful practical technique based on Green function methods for calculating transport through small open systems. Supriyo Datta is one of its leading exponents and his new textbook makes a valiant and fascinating effort to use the formalism to provide a simple exposition of quantum transport on the atomic scale…It is more accessible, more embracing and a much better read than his earlier monograph… It contains excellent examples, good breadth and progressive detail, and is of real value to electronic engineers, physicists, and chemists researching modern interdisciplinary nanoelectronics."
    Chemistry World

    "Molecular transport phenomena in junctions is a very 'hot' area, that is best understood in terms of quantum transport phenomena in general. This book, by one of the true leaders in this field, presents and clarifies molecular transport in the context of the larger quantum transport area. The text is lucid, masterful, understandable and unified. The numerical examples and MATLAB codes combine with the discussions to provide a strongly integrated and very readable overview of the field."
    Mark Ratner, Professor of Chemistry, Northwestern University

    "A lucid treatment of what's destined to be the 'next big thing' for electrical engineers - conduction at the atomic scale - eminently suitable for students and professionals alike. The generous use of examples and clarifying remarks, together with the novel approach of sequentially building up transport theory from the 'bottom up' and a genuine flair for effortlessly bringing together salient aspects of physics and engineering makes this a very useful book, indeed."
    Dr Steve Laux, IBM, Yorktown Heights
