Abstract. This chapter is a review of the research of the authors from the last decade and focuses
on the mathematical analysis of the Schrödinger model for nano­scale semiconductor devices. We
discuss transparent boundary conditions (TBCs) for the time­dependent Schrödinger equation on a
two dimensional domain.
First we derive the two dimensional discrete TBCs in conjunction with a conservative Crank­
Nicolson­type finite difference scheme and a compact nine­point scheme. For this difference equa-
tions we derive discrete transparent boundary conditions (DTBCs) in order to get highly accurate
solutions for open boundary problems. The presented discrete boundary­valued problem is uncon-
ditionally stable and completely reflection­free at the boundary.
