#### Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots

Wiley 2005; US$ 80.00Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots Second Edition: Theoretical and Computational Physics of Semiconductor Nanostructures provides all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, for complete beginners to develop an understanding of how the electronic, optical and transport properties of quantum wells, wires and dots are calculated.... more...

#### Introduction to Mesoscopic Physics

Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 224.99"Mesoscopic physics" refers to the physics of structures larger than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) but smaller than a micrometer (one millionth of a meter). This size range is the stage on which the exciting new research on submicroscopic and electronic and mechanical devices is being done. This research often crosses the boundary between... more...

#### Programming the Universe

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2006; US$ 16.00Is the universe actually a giant quantum computer? According to Seth Lloyd, the answer is yes. All interactions between particles in the universe, Lloyd explains, convey not only energy but also information?in other words, particles not only collide, they compute. What is the entire universe computing, ultimately? ?Its own dynamical evolution,? he... more...

#### Feynman's Thesis - A New Approach To Quantum Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 15.00Richard Feynman?s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled ?The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics,? its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space?time viewpoint,... more...
