The main purpose of the introduction is to give an elementary description of certain concepts in the physics of semiconductors, such as the energy bands in a crystal, holes, etc. In addition, a number of special problems which to a considerable extent form the basis of further discussion (such as the recombination theory of Shockley and Read) are also examined in the introduction. Thus, the introduction is devoted only to certain problems of semiconductor physics and does not claim to be complete or systematic.*
