"Semiclassical limit in a simplified quantum energy-transport model for semiconductors";
Kinetic and Related Models, 4 (2011), 4; 1049 - 1062.

English abstract:
The semiclassical limit in a quantum energy-transport model for
semiconductors is proved. The system consists of a nonlinear parabolic fourthorder
equation for the electron density, including temperature gradients; a
degenerate elliptic heat equation for the electron temperature; and the Poisson
equation for the electric potential. The equations are solved in a bounded
domain with periodic boundary conditions. The asymptotic limit is based on
a priori estimates independent of the scaled Planck constant, obtained from
entropy functionals, on the use of Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequalities, and weak
compactness methods.
