ECE 65900 - Quantum TransportLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
Areas of Specialization(s):
Normally Offered: Each Spring
This course is designed for graduate students familiar with differential equations and linear algebra, but having no significant acquaintance with either quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics. The purpose of the course is to introduce the relevant concepts of quantum mechanics and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics using device-related examples. We use MATLAB-based numerical examples to provide concrete illustrations and the homeworks require students to set up their own computer program on a PC to reproduce the results.
