Analysis of a discretization algorithm for stationary continuity equations in semiconductor device models. II. (English) Zbl 0619.65117

In part I [ibid. 2, 117-139 (1983; reviewed above)] an analysis was presented of a discretization procedure for a class of elliptic problems, including the Scharfetter-Gummel method for the continuity equations of stationary semiconductor device models. Here, the previous results are extended in two directions: firstly, to such problems in an arbitrary number of dimensions and, secondly, to include the computation of suitable moments, as opposed to point-values, of the carrier density distributions.
