This book presents the conceptual framework underlying the
atomistic theory of matter, emphasizing those aspects that relate
to current flow. This includes some of the most advanced concepts
of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. No prior
acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed. Chapter 1 provides
a description of quantum transport in elementary terms accessible
to a beginner. The book then works its way from hydrogen to
nanostructures, with extensive coverage of current flow. The final
chapter summarizes the equations for quantum transport with
illustrative examples showing how conductors evolve from the atomic
to the ohmic regime as they get larger. Many numerical examples are
used to provide concrete illustrations and the corresponding Matlab
codes can be downloaded from the web. Videostreamed lectures, keyed
to specific sections of the book, are also available through the
web. This book is primarily aimed at senior and graduate students.
