Abstract: We shall consider Zlámal’s approach to the nonstationary equations of the semiconductor device theory under magnetic fields, with mixed boundary conditions. Owing to the reduced smoothness of the electric potential $\psi$ and carrier densities n and p caused by considering the mixed boundary conditions, we must use a nonstandard analysis for this procedure. Existence as well as uniqueness of the approximate solution is proved. The convergence rates obtained in this paper are slower than those previously obtained for pure Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions.
