The Salters Horners Advanced Physics series provides a course in advanced physics for students and teachers. It places physics into social, industrial, environmental and historical contexts, and covers the A Level specifications in place from September 2000. The materials have been successfully trialled in pilot schools, with the final versions refined following feedback from teachers, students and technicians. This AS Level student's book offers: maths support notes - providing a review of GCSE maths and an introduction to early A Level maths for students with less mathematical ability and higher level maths for the mathematically-minded; applications-led illustrations of the social, economic of industrial aspects of physics, for example, designing buildings to withstand earthquakes, to help students understand the relevance of physics in everyday life; and a full-colour and clear design.

Princeton Guide to Advanced Physics

From classical mechanics to general relativity, the key principles in all areas of physics are surveyed in this one handy volume. Here Alan Tribble addresses the needs of students and practicing physicists alike. He starts with a review of mathematical methods and then summarizes the most widely used concepts in physics, detailing derivations and applications. With its mix of theory, application, and solved problems, Advanced Physics enables a student to grasp quickly the fundamentals of the field while providing physicists, engineers, and mathematicians with an ideal reference for locating critical formulas or reviewing mathematical details. One of Tribble's goals is to help students, particularly those preparing for comprehensive examinations, to develop and retain a broad base of knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physical principles. Until now, reaching this goal has been a time-consuming and difficult task for the student, partly because so many texts have omitted key steps in crucial derivations or have assigned these derivations as exercises. By gathering widespread information into one highly accessible format, Advanced Physics will become an invaluable study aid, will serve readily as a text in a review course or as a supplemental text in higher-level courses, and will make for an indispensable reference for professionals throughout their careers.

This fast and easy guide offers: Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts Sample problems with worked solutions A quick way to prepare for physics questions on college entrance exams Coverage of Kepler's Laws, Newton's Law, and Ohm's Law for AC circuits A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Advanced Physics Demystified takes the resistance out of learning this fascinating subject.

Advanced Physics of Electron Transport in Semiconductors and Nanostructures

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319011014

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 474

This textbook is aimed at second-year graduate students in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or Materials Science. It presents a rigorous introduction to electronic transport in solids, especially at the nanometer scale.Understanding electronic transport in solids requires some basic knowledge of Hamiltonian Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Condensed Matter Theory, and Statistical Mechanics. Hence, this book discusses those sub-topics which are required to deal with electronic transport in a single, self-contained course. This will be useful for students who intend to work in academia or the nano/ micro-electronics industry.Further topics covered include: the theory of energy bands in crystals, of second quantization and elementary excitations in solids, of the dielectric properties of semiconductors with an emphasis on dielectric screening and coupled interfacial modes, of electron scattering with phonons, plasmons, electrons and photons, of the derivation of transport equations in semiconductors and semiconductor nanostructures somewhat at the quantum level, but mainly at the semi-classical level. The text presents examples relevant to current research, thus not only about Si, but also about III-V compound semiconductors, nanowires, graphene and graphene nanoribbons. In particular, the text gives major emphasis to plane-wave methods applied to the electronic structure of solids, both DFT and empirical pseudopotentials, always paying attention to their effects on electronic transport and its numerical treatment. The core of the text is electronic transport, with ample discussions of the transport equations derived both in the quantum picture (the Liouville-von Neumann equation) and semi-classically (the Boltzmann transport equation, BTE). An advanced chapter, Chapter 18, is strictly related to the ‘tricky’ transition from the time-reversible Liouville-von Neumann equation to the time-irreversible Green’s functions, to the density-matrix formalism and, classically, to the Boltzmann transport equation. Finally, several methods for solving the BTE are also reviewed, including the method of moments, iterative methods, direct matrix inversion, Cellular Automata and Monte Carlo. Four appendices complete the text.
