Item description for Introduction to Wave Scattering, Localization and Mesoscopic Phenomena (Springer Series in Materials Science) by P. Sheng...

Waves represent a classic topic of study in physics, mathematics, and engineering. Many modern technologies are based on our understanding of waves and their interaction with matter. In the past thirty years there have been some revolutionary developments in the study of waves. The present volume is the only available source which details these developments in a systematic manner, with the aim of reaching a broad audience of non-experts. It is an important resource book for those interested in understanding the physics underlying nanotechnology and mesoscopic phenomena, as well as for bridging the gap between the textbooks and research frontiers in any wave related topic. A special feature of this volume is the treatment of classical and quantum mechanical waves within a unified framework, thus facilitating an understanding of similarities and differences between the two.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Wave Scattering, Localization and Mesoscopic Phenomena (Springer Series in Materials Science)?

Daunting at first perusal, but well worth reading  Mar 13, 2003
I'm working my way through this book right now. Obviously this book will only appeal to specialists interested in mesoscopic systems or multiple scattering of light and sound. I'm interested in light.

The best features of the book are:

1) The author is an expert
2) He shows you real research problems and points out the things that are not yet known. Many textbooks merely summarize what is already known.
3) There are 36 problems, all of them worth doing. All of them have solutions. Because of the advanced level, the problems are usually not of the kind that have a simple answer to get right or wrong. Rather, the problems are usually detailed derivations that he walks you through. You could try to solve them on your own, but since this is the only place where he really gets down to the nitty-gritty, you probably won't even know where to start (I don't). I look at them more as tutorials.

Anyway, this is well worth buying if you can find it.
