It specifically targets those topics within quantum mechanics that are needed to understand modern semiconductor theory. It begins with the motivation for quantum mechanics and why classical physics fails when dealing with very small particles and small dimensions. Two key features make this book different from others on quantum mechanics, even those usually intended for engineers: First, after a brief introduction, much of the development is through Fourier theory, a topic that is at the heart of most electrical engineering theory. In this manner, the explanation of the quantum mechanics is rooted in the mathematics familiar to every electrical engineer. Secondly, beginning with the first chapter, simple computer programs in MATLAB are used to illustrate the principles. The programs can easily be copied and used by the reader to do the exercises at the end of the chapters or 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 to generate that figure. These programs are available to the reader. Appendix D lists all the programs, and they are also downloadable at http://booksupport.wiley.com"--cProvided by publisher.00tIntroduction --tStationary States --tFourier Theory in Quantum Mechanics --tMatrix Algebra in Quantum Mechanics --tA Brief Introduction to Statistical Mechanics --tBands and Subbands --tThe Sch{under}rdinger Equation for Spin-1/2 Fermions --tThe Green's Function Formulation --tTransmission --tApproximation Methods --tThe Harmonic Oscillator --tFinding Eigenfunctions Using Time-Domain Simulation --tAppendix A: Important Constants and Units --tAppendix B: Fourier Analysis and the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) --tAppendix C: An Introduction to the Green's Function Method --tAppendix D: Listings of the Programs Used in this Book --tIndex. aIncludes index.0 aPrint version record. 0aQuantum theory. 0aElectrical engineering. 7aElectrical engineering.2fast0(OCoLC)fst01728596 7aQuantum theory.2fast0(OCoLC)fst01085128 4aElectronic books.2 aWiley InterScience (Online service)08iPrint version:aSullivan, Dennis Michael, 1949-tQuantum mechanics for electrical engineers.dOxford : Wiley-Blackwell, 2011z9780470874097w(OCoLC)75174534440uhttp://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/book/10.1002/9781118169780zWiley Online Library a92bDG1 c11700d11700
