Summary
Explore the relationship between quantum mechanics and information-age applicationsThis volume takes an altogether unique approach to quantum mechanics. Providing an in-depth exposition of quantum mechanics fundamentals, it shows how these concepts are applied to most of today's information technologies, whether they are electronic devices or materials. No other text makes this critical, essential leap from theory to real-world applications.The book's lively discussion of the mathematics involved fits right in with contemporary multidisciplinary trends in education: Once the ba
