In this paper we treat a boundary condition, the "sticky boundary," which appears to be quite useful in mesoscopic models. The sticky boundary is modeled as an infinitely deep, infinitely narrow, potential well adjacent to a reflecting boundary. The free energy corresponding to this boundary is finite. The boundary condition, which can be viewed as an intermediate between the absorbing and reflecting boundary condition, may have many applications, e.g., for the simulation of the partial… CONTINUE READING
