Nonlinear dynamics (''chaos theory'') and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The author gives a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.
by Leon van Dommelen
This book was written for engineering graduate students who find themselves caught up in nano technology. The first part of the book provides a solid introduction to classical quantum mechanics, the second part discusses more advanced topics.
