How to choose the range of convergence for self-consistent solutions for gnrfet?

Hi, i’m trying to choose the range of convergence for self-consistent solution of potential(from poisson’s equation) and density ( from NEGF) for graphene nanoribbon field effect transistor, can anybody guide me or introduce some lecture to help me? thanks alot.

    Dear mona you should calculate the relative difference between V(n) and V(n+1) (n number of iteration) which is defined as :

    r =( ||V(n+1) – V(n)|| ) / ( ||v(n+1)|| + ||v(n)|| ) where || ‘ || is the norm of the matrix . r is a total arbitrary number which is way smaller than 1 for example 10e-6 .

    Note that you can use the Broyden’s second method which can decrease the number of iterations significantly. good luck Sina

    by the way I think it really doesn’t matter what kind of material or device you’re trying to simulate
