This book presents a unique approach to the fundamentals of quantum transport,
and is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students. Some of the most
advanced concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics are included and
yet no prior acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed. Chapter 1 provides
a description of quantum transport in elementary terms accessible to a beginner.
The book then works its way from the hydrogen atom to nanostructures ending
with a unified model for quantum transport along with illustrative examples
showing how conductors evolve from the atomic to the ohmic regime (or from 'atom
to transistor') as they get larger. Many numerical examples are used to
provide concrete illustrations and the corresponding MATLAB codes are provided
in the book. These codes, along with videostreamed lectures by the author, keyed
to specific sections of the book, are available at the webpage for the book
- under 'resources and solutions'.
