Global existence of smooth solutions of the \(N\)-dimensional Euler-Poisson model. (English) Zbl 1043.35109
A semiconductor model consistent with extended thermodynamics is considered. The Cauchy problem is studied under the assumption that initial data are close to a steady-state solution. The global unique solvability is proved, and the exponential stability of the steady-state solution is established. The question of the momentum relaxation time limit \(\tau\to 0\) is studied with the condition \(\tau\sigma \to\beta\), \(\beta =\text{const}>0\), where \(\sigma\) is the energy relaxation time.
