NNSE 618 Lecture #10 2 Boltzmann Kinetic Equation We need to find an equation that describes the behavior of the distribution function in space and time The distribution function can change by… a spatial inflow/outflow of carriers an inflow/outflow of carriers in momentum space by means of a force scattering of carriers into or out of a particular location in position-momentum space the presence of a source or sink of carriers
