Paper to commemorate Markus Buttiker

who has passed away on Oct 4, 2013 in the age of 63. There will be a special issue of Physica E devoted to his memory.

From the conclusions:
“In conclusion, we have provided a technical and comprehensive introduction to the Keldysh action formalism for a multi-terminal scatterer with special emphasis on superconducting leads. We have derived a very general and compact formula and have elaborated on simple important examples to demonstrate the variety of its applications.

I did this to commemorate Markus Buttiker, the pioneer of scattering approach to quantum transport, one of the fathers of this big, prosperous and fruitfully developing research field. I admire not only his research merits: throughout 25 years of our acquaintance I was appreciating much his daring to remain himself, to keep his own research style, research topics and idea sets in times where the close following of a quickly changing scientific fashion seemed to be a must. He was also a charming personality and a good friend.”

The paper can be found here.
