Modeling of sensor devices has to take into account not only variable voltaves and currents but also variable device parameters. This makes transient differentiation and integration more complex than for circuits with constant device characteristics. The problem is increased when behavioral models allow for unrealistic idealizations such as discontinuous functions. To obtain convervent solutions that make sense we must understand the little differences between what we want to do, what the software can do, what it will do and what we have simulated at the end.
