Covering classical and quantum transport approaches, this work delivers the simulation methods needed for proper modeling of new nanoscale devices. The first part is dedicated to semi-classical transport methods, including drift-diffusion, hydrodynamic, and Monte Carlo methods for solving the Boltzmann transport equation. Details are given regarding numerical implementation and as appropriate, sample codes are provided to serve as templates for sophisticated simulation software. The second part is dedicated to quantum transport approaches. It introduces the density gradient method, quantum hydrodynamics, and the concept of effective potentials used to account for quantum-mechanical space quantization effects in particle-based simulators.
