Abstract

A quantum-kinetic equation accounting for the electron-phonon interaction is solved bya stochastic approach. Analyzed are three analytically equivalent integral formulationof the equation which appear to have different numerical properties. Particularly thepath-integral formulation is found to be advantageous for the numerical treatment. Theanalysis is supported by the presented simulation results. A variety of physical effectssuch as collisional broadening and collision retardation introduced by the equation arediscussed.
