Mathematics and Physics for Nanotechnology

Technical Tools and Modelling

by Paolo Di Sia

“This book by Dr. Paolo Di Sia provides an excellent combination of mathematical tools to solve physical problems in the field of nanoscience. It nicely explains the basics, more advanced function theory, ranging from complex functions to complex integration, and numerical methods, which can be used to solve the intriguing and important questions given at the end of chapters. These questions, which deal with the breakdown of classical descriptions of mainly the transport phenomena, are an excellent feature of the book and appear in the form of solved and unsolved exercises. The book discusses relevant topics such as quantum basics for nanotechnology, Schrödinger equation and nanotechnology plasmonics and modelling of nanodiffusion in graphene in detail and scrutinises numerical and analytical descriptions. It is rather unique in its selection of topics and interdisciplinary treatment of problems in fields ranging from nanoscience to nanotechnology and even nanobiotechnology. It is highly recommended for advanced-level students, postdocs and researchers in this fast-emerging field.”
