We consider a physical model of ultrafast evolution of an initial electron distribution in a quantum wire. The electron evolution is described by a quantum-kinetic equation accounting for the interaction with phonons. A Monte Carlo approach has been developed for solving the equation. The corresponding Monte Carlo algorithm is NP-hard problem concerning the evolution time. To obtain solutions for long evolution times with small stochastic error we combine both variance reduction techniques and distributed computations. Grid technologies are implemented due to the large computational efforts imposed by the quantum character of the model.
