About the Authors
Ranga D. Muhandiramge is a mathematics Ph.D. student at the University of Western Australia. In 2003, Muhandiramge did his honours project jointly in mathematics and physics modelling quantum dots, for which he received firstclass honours and a prize for the most outstanding honours graduand. He currently works in the area of operations research on mine field path planning with the assistance of scholarships from the Hackett Foundation and the Defense Science and Technology Organisation.
Jingbo Wang is an associate professor of physics at The University of Western Australia. Her research areas and interests range widely from atomic physics, molecular and chemical physics, spectroscopy, acoustics, chaos, nanostructured electronic devices, and mesoscopic physics to quantum information and computation. Wang has published over 100 research papers in peerreviewed journals and international conference proceedings. Wang uses Mathematica extensively in both her teaching and research, and she is also an editorial board member of the Journal of Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience.
