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.
Check out Supriyo Datta's NEGF page for more information, or browse through the various resources listed below.

How to consider electron-photon interaction w/o using self-energy?
Closed | Responses: 0
In negf, interactions are considered as self-energies. For electron-photon interaction, a perturbation Hamiltonian is derived and then self-energy is found using coupled-field theory. Now,...

NEGF Formulism Question
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...
