The Schrodinger’s equations were used to develop the band theory of semiconductors. Graphite’s (the graphene’s precursor) electronic band structure was worked out to demonstrate the capabilities of solid state physics 1 . More recently, the Dirac approach (utilizing the symmetry of graphene) has explained (at least to some extent) the graphene’s unique electronic properties, such as high electron mobility among others.
