The transfer matrix approach is analytically exact, and “arbitrary” heterostructures can apparently be handled through the discretization of potential changes. The approach appears to be quite appealing. However, the approach is inherently unstable for realistically extended devices which exhibit electrostatic band bending or include a large number of basis sets.
