Quantum Mechanics for Electrical Engineers
The main topic of this book is quantum mechanics, as the titleindicates. It specifically targets those topics within quantummechanics that are needed to understand modern semiconductortheory. It begins with the motivation for quantum mechanics and whyclassical physics fails when dealing with very small particles andsmall dimensions. Two key features make this book different fromothers on quantum mechanics, even those usually intended forengineers: First, after a brief introduction, much of thedevelopment is through Fourier theory, a topic that is at the heartof most electrical engineering theory. In this manner, theexplanation of the quantum mechanics is rooted in the mathematicsfamiliar to every electrical engineer. Secondly, beginning with thefirst chapter, simple computer programs in MATLAB are used toillustrate the principles. The programs can easily be copied andused by the reader to do the exercises at the end of the chaptersor to just become more familiar with the material.
Many of the figures in this book have a title across the top.This title is the name of the MATLAB program that was used togenerate that figure. These programs are available to the reader.Appendix D lists all the programs, and they are also downloadableat ahref="http://booksupport.wiley.com/"http://booksupport.wiley.com/a
