The nonlinear Schrödinger equation with general nonlinearity of polynomial growth and harmonic confining potential is considered. More precisely, the confining potential is strongly anisotropic; i.e., the trap frequencies in different directions are of different orders of magnitude. The limit as the ratio of trap frequencies tends to zero is carried out. A(More)
Asymptotic quantum transport models of a two-dimensional electron gas are presented. The starting point is a singular perturbation of the three-dimensional Schrödinger-Poisson system. The small parameter ε is the scaled width of the electron gas and appears as the lengthscale on which a one dimensional confining potential varies. The rigorous ε → 0 limit is(More)
We study the limit of the three-dimensional Schrödinger-Poisson system with a singular perturbation, to model a quantum electron gas that is strongly confined near an axis. For well-prepared data, which are polarized on the ground space of the transversal Hamiltonian, the resulting model is the cubic defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Our main tool(More)
We introduce a new micro-macro decomposition of collisional kinetic equations in the specific case of the diffusion limit, which naturally incorporates the incoming boundary conditions. The idea is to write the distribution function f in all its domain as the sum of an equilibrium adapted to the boundary (which is not the usual equilibrium associated with(More)
In this paper, we are concerned with an averaging procedure, namely Stroboscopic averaging, for highly-oscillatory evolution equations posed in a (possibly infinite dimensional) Banach space, typically partial differential equations (PDEs) in a high-frequency regime where only one frequency is present. We construct a high-order averaged system whose(More)
We present an entropic Quantum Drift Diffusion model (eQDD) and show how it can be derived on a bounded domain as the diffusive approximation of the Quantum Liouville equation with a quantum BGK operator. Some links between this model and other existing models are exhibited, especially with the Density Gradient (DG) model and the Schrödinger-Poisson Drift(More)
This paper is devoted to the discretization and numerical simulation of a new quantum drift-diffusion model that was recently derived. In a first step, we introduce an implicit semi-discretization in time which possesses some interesting properties: this system is well-posed, it preserves the positivity of the density, the total charge is conserved, and it(More)
We consider the semiclassical limit for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We introduce a phase/amplitude representation given by a system similar to the hydrodynamical formulation, whose novelty consists in including some asymptotically vanishing viscosity. We prove that the system is always locally well-posed in a class of Sobolev spaces, and globally(More)
