Publisher Synopsis

This book written by Sandip Tiwari, a distinguished teacher and an accomplished researcher in the broad area of semiconductor science and engineering, should serve as a monumental textbook for advanced undergraduates and fresh graduate students and researchers reading physics and engineering of nanodevices. The appendices and exercises provided are informative and instructive to make the subject more comprehensible. The book is a timely and valuable contribution tothe growing field of nanoscience and technology. * A.V. Narlikar, Physics Department, University of Hamburg and Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi, India * This book provides a unique, elegantly unified discussion of information processing and computation in nanoscale physical systems, encompassing the fundamental nature of information, its various physical embodiments, and phenomena that can be exploited at the nanoscale for information manipulation and storage. No other source provides such breadth of coverage, which here is combined with Tiwarias characteristically deep, insightful exposition and perspective. Asthe first to appear in what is envisioned to be a four-volume series on "electroscience of the nanoscale", Nanoscale Device Physics will serve as a unique and highly valuable resource for advanced education in, and thoughtful reflection on, modern solid state device physics. * Edward T. Yu, Microelectronics Research Center, University of Texas at Austin * Read more...
