Properties such as superconductivity, electronic correlations and magnetism, quantum interferences and entanglement, widely studied in bulk materials, can be controled in great detail in nanostructures. The resulting behaviors, observable by electronic transport, are modelized with analytic and numerical techniques, when possible in contact with experiments in the lab. One goal is the understanding of novel emergent physical effects, another is their possible application in fully-functional quantum-based nanoelectronic devices.
