Holes. Evaluation of the product of state density dependent on the effective mass m*, volume V. And the Fermi distribution function f, dependent on the parameter mu. f replaced by approximate expression, close to the Boltzmann factor due to the large value of the gap as compared to the value of kT. The valence band maximum EV. Substitution variable x2. Small drawing of the missing electrons.
