Parallel preconditioning for spherical harmonics expansions of the Boltzmann transport equation

Abstract

While the Monte Carlo method for the Boltzmann transport equation for semiconductors has already been parallelized, this is much more difficult to accomplish for the deterministic spherical harmonics expansion method which requires the solution of a linear system of equations. For the typically employed iterative solvers, preconditioners are required to… (More)
