This book is designed to give a background to the origins and development of Wigner functions, as well as its mathematical underpinnings. Along the way the authors emphasise the connections, and differences, from the more popular non-equilibrium Green's function approaches. But, the key importance lies in inclusion of applications of the Wigner function to various fields of science, including quantum information, coherent optics, and superconducting qubits. These disciplines approach it differently, and the goal here is to give a unified background and highlight how it is utilized in the different disciplines.


David Ferry is Regents' Professor Emeritus in the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University. He was also graduate faculty in the Department of Physics and the Materials Science and Engineering program at ASU, as well as Visiting Professor at Chiba University in Japan. He came to ASU in 1983 following shorter stints at Texas Tech University, the Office of Naval Research, and Colorado State University. In the distant past, he received his doctorate from the University of Texas, Austin, and spent a postdoctoral period at the University of Vienna, Austria. He enjoys teaching (which he refers to as "warping young minds") and research. The latter is focused on semiconductors, particularly as they apply to nanotechnology and integrated circuits, as well as quantum effects in devices. In 1999, he received the Cledo Brunetti Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and is a Fellow of this group as well as the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics (UK). He has been a Tennessee Squire since 1971 and an Admiral in the Texas Navy since 1973. He is the author, co-author, or editor of some 40 books and about 900 refereed scientific contributions.
