Steady-state I-V characteristics of a resonant tunneling diode (RTD) is calculated by numerical analysis using quantum liouville equation based on wigner function which is derived from density operator. Modifications to the conventional discrete model are made to calculate more accurate quantum correlations. It is pointed out that we must include inelastic processes and the resistivity of the contacting layers to get a much more credible potential which can be theoretically obtained from the simple screening theory. The effects of spatially-varying effective mass is also checked briefly.
