Warm congratulations to Prof. Uri Peskin for the publication of his new text book on “Quantum Mechanics in Nanoscience and Engineering”!

This book teaches quantum mechanics for students entering the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Nanotechnology and more.


It goes fairly rigorously from basic QM to phenomena and processes in the “real world” (thermal, wet, dense,…).

Its unique pedagogical attitude formulates much of the technical steps as questions/guided exercises. Just reading these exercises already gives a flavor of the underlying proofs, for “easy” reading. More rigorous students would probably want to actively solve the exercises or follow the solution manual, to gain a complete hold on any claim and equation.

The book covers most of the topics in elementary courses of introduction to QM and to quantum chemistry, as well as some advanced topics including open quantum systems, charge and energy transport, and more.
