A USEFUL ANALOGY BETWEEN SEMICONDUCTOR VOLTAGE‐CURRENT CHARACTERISTICS AND COMBUSTION BRANCHING DIAGRAMS

Karl Gustafson (Department of Mathematics, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO 80309–0426 USA)

Abstract

The Van Roosbroeck semiconductor device equations are put into useful analogy with the Arrhenius equations of combustion theory. Both, when written in appropriate variables, enjoy (suffer) exponential nonlinearities. Here, we present this analogy in rather simple terms. It is proposed that this analogy be further developed.
