We present an overview of mathematical models for electrons and holes in semiconductors. We use these to pose some inverse problems for determining the doping profile of a semiconductor. We establish the solvability of the equilibrium equation λ²∆u = e^u−e^(-u)–C in Ω. We also obtain information about the conductivity coefficient in the important case when it is piecewise constant and discontinuous.,Thesis (M.S.)--Wichita State University, Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics.,Includes
