Nonlinear Noisy Leaky Integrate and Fire (NNLIF) models for neurons networks can be written as Fokker-Planck-Kolmogorov equations on the probability density of neurons, the main parameters in the model being the connectivity of the network and the noise. We analyse several aspects of the NNLIF model: the number of steady states, a priori estimates, blow-up(More)
The Network Noisy Leaky Integrate and Fire equation is among the simplest model allowing for a self-consistent description of neural networks and gives a rule to determine the probability to find a neuron at the potential v. However, its mathematical structure is still poorly understood and, concerning its solutions, very few results are available. In the(More)
We model a nanoMOSFET by a mesoscopic, time-dependent, coupled quantum-classical system based on a sub-band decomposition and a simple scattering operator. We first compute the sub-band decomposition and electrostatic force field described by a Schrödinger-Poisson coupled system solved by a Newton-Raphson iteration using the eigenvalue/eigenfunction(More)
To describe the collective behavior of large ensembles of neurons in neuronal network, a kinetic theory description was developed in [13, 12], where a macroscopic representation of the network dynamics was directly derived from the microscopic dynamics of individual neurons, which are modeled by conductance-based, linear, integrate-and-fire point neu-rons.(More)
We prove the nonlinear stability in L p , with 1 ≤ p ≤ 2, of particular steady solutions of the Vlasov–Poisson system for charged particles in the whole space R 6. Our main tool is a functional associated to the relative entropy or Casimir-energy functional. 1. Introduction. We consider a gas of charged particles described by a distribution function f (t,(More)
The spike trains are the main components of the information processing in the brain. To model spike trains several point processes have been investigated in the literature. And more macroscopic approaches have also been studied, using partial differential equation models. The main aim of the present article is to build a bridge between several point(More)
Time-dependent solutions to the Boltzmann-Poisson system in two spatial dimensions and three-dimensional velocity space are obtained by using a recently developed high order WENO scheme. The collision operator of the Boltzmann equation models the scattering processes between electrons and phonons which are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium. In this(More)
