Weak Limits of the Quantum Hydrodynamic Model

Received13 Aug 1997
Revised01 Dec 1998


A numerical study of the dispersive limit of the quantum hydrodynamic equations for semiconductors is presented. The solution may develop high frequency oscillations when the scaled Planck constant is small. Numerical evidence is given of the fact that in such cases the solution does not converge to the solution of the formal limit equations.
