## Quantum Transport: Atom to TransistorThis book presents the conceptual framework underlying the atomistic theory of matter, emphasizing those that relate to current flow. This includes some of the most advanced concepts of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. No prior acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed. Many numerical examples are used to provide concrete illustrations and the corresponding MATLAB codes can be downloaded from the web. Videostreamed lectures, keyed to specific sections of the book are also available through the web. Written for senior and graduate students. |

It's very Good textbook for starting nanoelectronic, by discussing many topics near each other in simple way, make it the best book in its type , also Dr Datta try to teach all complicated problems by simplest format that possible, But in one way this good properties is also it big weakness, because someone, whom wants to make something new in this topics, seen these, very surface look and This maybe tease some.....for example in field of nano transistor, that discuss for specific in some chapter , in book Nanoscale Transistors... by S.Lundsrtom published by Springer , discussed more deeper and more physically so , Datta's book Good for Engineering or physicist’s whom want engineering look to devices and Lundstrom's book good for physics and engineering whom want to build new topics in this field in devices...... maybe the place of a book between these are so empty …
