Requisites by Topic:
Familiarity with matrix algebra, MATLAB, Elementary differential equations.
Nanoelectronic devices are an integral part of our life, including the billion-plus transistors in every smartphone, each of which has an active region that is only a few hundred atoms long. This courses is designed to convey the key concepts developed in the last 25 years which constitute the fundamentals of nanoelectronics and mesoscopic physics, assuming a minimal set of prerequisites.
