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.

Simple Theory of the Ballistic MOSFET
19 Oct 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Silicon nanoelectronics has become silicon nanoelectronics, but we
still analyze, design, and think about MOSFETs in more or less in the
same way that we did 30 years ago. In this talk, I...
