Summary

Quantum dot nano structures are interesting for applications in information technology and play a growing role in date storage, medical and biological applications. Understanding quantum nanomaterials is thus the key for the conception and optimization of novel structures. This monograph gives an overview of the theory and introduces the concepts of advanced computational modeling of quantum dot nanomaterials ranging from phenomenological models up to fully quantum theoretical description.
