5.4 Boundaries

Boundaries are handled in a similar way to interfaces. However, in the boundary segment there is only one variable available for each solution quantity ($ \nu_{C}^{}$). Furthermore the flux over the boundary is handled as another solution variable FC (e.g., QC for Poisson's equation , InC for the electron continuity equations, or HC as the contact heat flow).
