Quantum mesoscopic physics covers a whole class in interference effects related to the propagation of waves in complex and random media. These effects are ubiquitous in physics, from the behaviour of electrons in metals and semiconductors to the propagation of electromagnetic waves in suspensions such as colloids, and quantum systems like cold atomic gases. A solid introduction to quantum mesoscopic physics, this book is a modern account of the problem of coherent wave propagation in random media. It provides a unified account of the basic theoretical tools and methods, highlighting the common aspects of the various optical and electronic phenomena involved and presenting a large number of experimental results. With over 200 figures, and exercises throughout, the book was originally published in 2007 and is ideal for graduate students in physics, electrical engineering, applied physics, acoustics and astrophysics. It will also be an interesting reference for researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... the type of book from which one can learn the subject even without a teacher.' Carlo Beenakker, Leiden University
Review of the hardback: '... highly recommended to both opticians and researchers interested in nanoelectronic devices. Applications to cold-atom and BEC systems can also be visualized.' Joe Imry, Weizmann Institute of Science
Review of the hardback: '... unique in equipping the reader with a powerful, complete, and yet very intuitive, diagrammatic tool box for computing all quantities of interest for mesoscopic physics problems dealing with diffusive, weakly-interacting particles.' Michel Devoret, Yale University
Review of the hardback: '... probably the most extensive effort thus far to provide an introduction and overview of wave transmission through objects with many scattering centers.' Markus Buttiker, University of Geneva
Review of the hardback: 'Invaluable to anybody already working in the field, but also highly recommended for newcomers.' Ad Lagendijk, University professor Amsterdam
Review of the hardback: 'This text serves as both a good introductory text to the propagation of waves in complex and disordered media and a handbook for those already working in the field.' Contemporary Physics
