Nature of problem:
Determine carrier mobility from first-principles in disordered semiconductors as a function of temperature, electric field and carrier concentration.

Solution method:
Iteratively solve master equation with carrier state energy and transition rates determined from first-principles.

Mobility for disordered semiconductors where the carrier wave-functions are localized and the carrier transport is due to phonon-assisted hopping mechanism.

Running time:
Depending on the system size (about an hour for the example here).
