This set of powerpoint slides series provides insight on what are the tools available for modeling devices that behave either classically or quantum-mechanically. An in-depth description is provided to the approaches with emphasis on the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Conclusions are drawn about the applicability of each approach. There are additional teaching materials that can be found on the nanohub that give more in-depth knowledge about each topic being addressed in this series.
The complete lecture series includes:
