We study the limit of vanishing ratio of the electron mass to the ion mass (zero-electron-mass limit) in the scaled Euler-Poisson equations. As the first step of this justification, we construct the uniform global classical solutions in critical Besov spaces with the aid of ``Shizuta-Kawashima" skew-symmetry. Then we establish frequency-localization estimates of Strichartz-type for the equation of acoustics according to the semigroup formulation. Finally, it is shown that the uniform classical solutions converge towards that of the incompressible Euler equations (for ill-preparedinitial data) in a refined way as the scaled electron-mass tends to zero. In comparison with the classical zero-mach-number limit in [7,23], we obtain different dispersive estimates due to the coupled electric field.

This paper is concerned with the global well-posedness and stability of classical solutions to the Cauchy problem for the multidimensional full hydrodynamic model in semiconductors on the framework of Besov space. By using the high- and low- frequency decomposition method, we obtain the exponential decay of classical solutions (close to equilibrium). Moreover, it is also shown that the vorticity decays to zero exponentially in the 2D and 3D space. The work weakens the regularity requirement of the initial data and improves some known results in Sobolev space.

This paper deals with non-isentropic hydrodynamic models for semiconductors with short momentum and energy relaxation times. With the help of the Maxwell iteration, we construct a new approximation and show that periodic initial-value problems of certain scaled non-isentropic hydrodynamic models have unique smooth solutions in a time interval independent of the two relaxation times. Furthermore, it is proved that as the two relaxation times both tend to zero, the smooth solutions converge to solutions of the corresponding semilinear drift-diffusion models.
