About Boltzmann Equations for Transport Modeling in Semiconductors

Conference paper


We present some results on the mathematical analysis of kinetic equations for modelling transport processes in semiconductors. We focus our attention on the connection between the kinetic models and the fluids ones based on drift-diffusion or hydrodynamic equations. Asymptotic analysis gives hydrodynamic coefficients in terms of microscopic quantities and allows to derive accurate boundary conditions.
