Course Summary
This course will focus on the theoretical description of quantum materials and related devices where the small size plays a crucial role in determining their properties and behaviours.  The fundamental aim is to provide the students with a working knowledge of contemporary theoretical nanophysics.  The course explains how nanophysical phenomena can be understood and how predictions for behaviour can be made.
