The non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) formalism provides a powerful conceptual and computational framework for treating quantum transport in nanodevices. It goes beyond the Landauer approach for ballistic, non-interacting electronics to include inelastic scattering and strong correlation effects at an atomistic level.

I’m not too familiar with the NEGF formalism. But had a very basic question.
I’ve read that NEGF can be viewed as a “Quantum Boltzmann Equation”. When...
In the time-dependent NEGF equation, given a sigma_in(t,t’) due to the dot, I am getting
an I-V equation that is making it difficult for me to group terms. For instance, looking at...
