Abstract

The evolution of charged defects in poly - crystalline solar cells leads to a large system of reaction diffusion equations exhibiting largely different time and spatial scales. The basic structure of the system is quite general and similar to systems arising in biological applications. We discuss asymptotically preserving computational methods based on an operator splitting approach.

We discuss asymptotically preserving computational methods based on an operator splitting approach.
