Study of electron transport at the nanoscale

Quantum Mechanics describes with precision the behavior of the nanoscopic world, but we can only solve its equations for very simple systems, consisting of just two or three particles. Researchers from the UAB have developed a new method for calculating the behavior of many particle...
