Numerical Simulation — A Case Study

  • Peter A. Markowich
Part of the Computational Microelectronics book series (COMPUTATIONAL)


We shall here present numerical results from a two-dimensional simulation of a silicon MOS-transistor in order to highlight the structure of solutions of the static device problem and to demonstrate the power of the presented numerical methods and the state of the art in device modeling.
