This monograph on quantum wires and quantum units is a significant other vol ume to the author's Quantum Chaos and Mesoscopic structures (Kluwer, Dordrecht, 1997). The aim of this paintings is to provide to the reader the mathematical physics which has arisen within the examine of those platforms. The direction which i've got taken during this quantity is to juxtapose the present paintings at the mathematical physics of quantum units and the main points in the back of the paintings in order that the reader can achieve an knowing of the physics, and the place attainable the open difficulties which re major within the improvement of a whole mathematical description of the units. i've got tried to incorporate enough heritage and references in order that the reader can comprehend the constraints of the present tools and feature course to the unique fabric for the examine at the physics of those units. As within the previous quantity, the monograph is a wide ranging survey of the mathe matical physics of quantum wires and units. precise proofs are saved to a min imum, with outlines of the critical steps and references to the first resources as required. The survey is particularly huge to offer a common improvement to a number of difficulties in quantum units, now not a distinctiveness volume.
