Abstract The classical Boltzmann equation describes well temporal behaviour of a rarefied perfect gas. Modified kinetic equations have been proposed for studying the dynamics of different type of gases. An important example is the transport equation, which describes the charged particles flow, in the semi-classical regime, in electronic devices. In order to reduce the difficulties in solving the Boltzmann equation, simple expressions of a collision operator have been proposed to replace the… 



Cross validation of discontinuous Galerkin method and Monte Carlo simulations of charge transport in graphene on substrate

The aim of this work is to simulate the charge transport in a monolayer graphene on a substrate. This requires the inclusion of the scatterings of the charge carriers with the impurities and the

A Model for Collision Processes in Gases. I. Small Amplitude Processes in Charged and Neutral One-Component Systems

A kinetic theory approach to collision processes in ionized and neutral gases is presented. This approach is adequate for the unified treatment of the dynamic properties of gases over a continuous

The quantum Boltzmann equation in semiconductor physics

The quantum Boltzmann equation, or Fokker‐Planck equation, has been used to successfully explain a number of experiments in semiconductor optics in the past two decades. This paper reviews some of

A short review on the derivation of the nonlinear quantum Boltzmann equations

In this review paper we describe the problem of deriving a Boltzmann equation for a system of N interacting quantum particles, under the appropriate scaling limits. We mainly follow the approach

Electronic properties of graphene

Graphene is the first example of truly two‐dimensional crystals – it's just one layer of carbon atoms. It turns out that graphene is a gapless semiconductor with unique electronic properties

The mathematical theory of non-uniform gases

The classic work on the mathematical theory of viscosity, thermal conduction and diffusion in non-uniform gases, based on the solution of the Maxwell-Boltzmann equations. This edition has been reset

Charge transport and mobility in monolayer graphene

For electron devices that make use of innovative materials, a basic step in the development of models and simulation computer aided design (CAD) tools is the determination of the mobility curves for

Nonequilibrium dynamics of photoexcited electrons in graphene : collinear scattering, Auger processes, and the impact of screening

We present a combined analytical and numerical study of the early stages (sub-100-fs) of the nonequilibrium dynamics of photoexcited electrons in graphene. We employ the semiclassical Boltzmann
