Computing methods in applied sciences and engineering VII, Proc. 7th Int. Symp., Versailles/France 1985, 3-12 (1986).
Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0651.00020.]
We present the basic physical equations that model the transient and steady-state behavior of mobile carriers in semiconductor devices. We also describe the time-stepping algorithm used in transient simulations, and we outline the principles of using continuation methods in steady- state calculations.
