First, this correlator employs charge-sign-randomized particles to provide a baseline for the charge separation, but the randomization will introduce a bias by destroying local charge conservation. Second, there is no correction for the event plane resolution in the measurement, making it impossible to directly compare the measurements between different experiments.
To solve the problem of floating conductor, a charge conservation equation is introduced to describe the triggering wire.
We use [9] the system (11) reduced to the Poisson's and charge conservation equations as in [2], [4]:
(a) the solution of (1) satisfies the charge conservation law
The final chapter addresses the simulation of linear and nonlinear dynamic circuits, providing treatment of methods for solving ordinary differential equations and covering issues of accuracy and stability of linear multistep methods, as well as advanced topics of time-step control, variable time-step, charge conservation, and the use of charge-based models in simulation.
AOM is a comprehensive model for GaAs MESFETs, which expands upon aspects of the TOM to account for dispersion, self-heating effects and charge conservation. A set of capacitance and charge equations are used for consistent small- and large-signal models.
