Electronic Properties of Materials

As of its conception, this book is explicitly broken into three distinct sections. In the first section, Quantum Mechanics for Engineers, the fundamental concepts and mathematics needed for the engineer to operate within a quantum framework are presented. The second section, Band Theory of Solids, expands upon the quantum mechanical concepts from the first to explain bonding and the quantum electronic structure of solids. The final section, Electronic Properties, explains how the electronic properties of materials come from the electronic structure derived from quantum mechanics.
