AMaSiS 2018: Applied Mathematics and Simulation for Semiconductors

WIAS Berlin, October 8-10, 2018

Scientific scope

The workshop is devoted to modeling, mathematical analysis, and numerical schemes for the simulation of semiconductor devices and charge transport in electrolytes and other physical or biological systems. The focus is on the treatment of multiple scales, the interplay of electronic, optical, thermal, fluidic and other effects in advanced device concepts and novel material systems. The emphasis is on the mathematics involved in all this. The topics are

  • Mathematical modeling of materials, interfaces and devices: semiconductor nanostructures, and novel material systems — embedding of fine scale models into semi-classical approaches — kinetic models for semiconductor composites with complex fine structure — bulk-interface coupling — multiphysics modeling — semiconductor-electrolyte composites including transport processes across interfaces

  • Contour integrals for matrix problems in quantum mechanics: numerical schemes — 'FEAST' software tutorial, applications in electronic structure calculations, density functional theory

  • Mathematical tools for generalized Nernst--Planck--Poisson systems and semiconductor device models: thermodynamic consistency — existence, uniqueness, regularity, and asymptotics — asymptotic methods and model reduction — analytic and numerical treatment of non-Boltzmann statistics, ion volume effects, degenerate diffusion and disordered materials.
