It is known that the maximum entropy moment systems of the gas-dynamical Boltzmann equation suffer from severe disadvantages which are related to the non-solvability of an underlying maximum entropy moment problem unless restrictions on the choice of the macroscopic variables are made. In this article, we show that no such difficulties appear in the semiconductor case if Kane's dispersion relation is used for the energy band of electrons.

Abstract

It is known that the maximum entropy moment systems of the gas-dynamical Boltzmann equation suffer from severe disadvantages which are related to the non-solvability of an underlying maximum entropy moment problem unless restrictions on the choice of the macroscopic variables are made. In this article, we show that no such difficulties appear in the semiconductor case if Kane's dispersion relation is used for the energy band of electrons.
