Study Guide:Mathematical Mesoscopic Physics/Physics Prerequisites

This is a brief list of topics you should learn about before even turning to mesoscopic physics proper. These are things that physics students learn during their courses on quantum mechanics (QM I and II), thermodynamics and statistical physics, and electrodynamics. However, since we have selected only the subset that comprises the bare essentials you need to know, the amount of this material is much smaller than you might expect.

Basic material from a first quantum mechanics course[edit]

More advanced material to deal with many particles and thermodynamic equilibrium[edit]
