Abstract:

Broadening has been introduced into the collision term of the master equation. Instead of the delta function condition on the energy of the initial and final states, we have a Lorentzian condition in the collision term. This implies scattering occurs from a state of energy E to states in a region from E-gamma to Egamma. The broadening term is evaluated for the electron-phonon interaction. Author
