Paper Abstract

The stochastic implementation of the laser rate equations is discussed in detail, in light of its application to numerically predict the properties of nanolasers. The deterministic integration scheme is analysed and tested for appropriateness to the problem. The simplest stochastic, first-order scheme is considered and its particular properties and requirements are discussed. Tests for the correctness of the numerical integration are presented. Finally, thorough tests for the convergence of the stochastic integration are performed, showing their different aspects and possible pitfalls.
