Covering recent developments in quantum computing and teleportation, Solid State and Quantum Theory for Optoelectronics presents a logical progression of material from the mathematics of linear algebra and Hilbert space to fundamental and perturbed solutions of the Schrödinger wave equation to multi-particle systems, second quantization, and Feynman Path integrals. This book provides applications to bonding, energy band theory including tight binding and k-p theory, electrical transport and density of states, and tensor effective mass. It also includes a discussion of statistical mechanics and entropy to deduce the Fermi-Dirac and Boltzman distributions. A CD-ROM accompanies the text.
