This book surveys the advanced simulation methods needed for proper modeling of state-of-the-art nanoscale devices. It systematically describes theoretical approaches and the numerical solutions that are used in explaining the operation of both power devices as well as nano-scale devices. It clearly explains for what types of devices a particular method is suitable, which is the most critical point that a researcher faces and has to decide upon when modeling semiconductor devices.
