About the Author
Chenming Calvin Hu holds the TSMC Distinguished Professor Chair of Microelectronics at University of California, Berkeley. He is a member of the US Academy of Engineering and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 2001 to 2004, he was the Chief Technology Officer of TSMC. A Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), he has been honored with the Jack Morton Award in1997 for his research on transistor reliability, the Solid State Circuits Award in 2002 for co-developing the first international standard transistor model for circuit simulation, and the Jun-ichi Nishizawa Medal in 2009 for exceptional contributions to device physics and scaling. He has supervised over 60 Ph.D. student theses, published 800 technical articles, and received more than 100 US patents. His other honors include Sigma Xi Moni Ferst Award, R&D 100 Award, and UC Berkeley’s highest award for teaching — the Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award.For additional information, visit the author's Web site.

Makes it a bit less enjoyable to read.
Can't tell where it is published. India?
I scanned the rest of the book. It is very thorough. I understand that this is necessary as the author is a professor and has a teaching and research position at Berkeley. This is a textbook, from a prestigious university and it is for a class, so it has to have all of the math. I have a math degree, plus a couple of other degrees, and 20+ years of working experience. I'm currently working on a similar book, but it will be for working engineers and, in addition to device physics, it will also include a lot of analog design. I will explain things as fully as possible, keeping the math as simple as possible. The truth is that working engineers don't do much math (we don't need it).
In any case, the writing style here is just the best that I've seen. Dr. Hu is forcing me to amp up my game (a bit) and I am grateful for the push. I plan to read most of it, and I know it will improve my understanding of things that I have loved to think about for years and years. Most of my texts are much older, and there are diagrams here that look very informative and that I have never seen before. Obviously, this book has my deepest appreciation and my highest recommendation. A major contribution to the literature.
