A BGK model for charge transport in graphene


The classical Boltzmann equation describes well temporal behaviour of a rarefied perfect gas. Modified kinetic equations have been proposed for studying the dynamics of different type of gases. An important example is the transport equation, which describes the charged particles flow, in the semi-classical regime, in electronic devices. In order to reduce the difficulties in solving the Boltzmann equation, simple expressions of a collision operator have been proposed to replace the standard Boltzmann integral term. These new equations are called kinetic models. The most popular and widely used kinetic model is the Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK) model. In this work we propose and analyse a BGK model for charge transport in graphene.
