We propose a second order finite volume scheme for nonlinear degenerate parabolic equations. For some of these models (porous media equation, drift-diffusion system for semiconductors, ...) it has been proved that the transient solution converges to a steady-state when time goes to infinity. The present scheme preserves steady-states and provides a(More)
We propose a finite volume scheme for convection-diffusion equations with nonlinear diffusion. Such equations arise in numerous physical contexts. We will particularly focus on the drift-diffusion system for semiconductors and the porous media equation. In these two cases, it is shown that the transient solution converges to a steady-state solution as t(More)
In this paper, we are interested in the numerical approximation of the classical time-dependent drift-diffusion system near quasi-neutrality. We consider a fully implicit in time and finite volume in space scheme, where the convection-diffusion fluxes are approximated by Scharfetter-Gummel fluxes. We establish that all the a priori estimates needed to prove(More)
