Relaxation of Energy and Momentum in an Carrier-Phonon System

If electrons (e) and holes (h) in metals or semiconductors are heated to the temperatures Te and Th greater than the lattice temperature Tp, the electron-phonon interaction causes energy relaxation.

Generalized balance equations for an electron–phonon system

A new model, based on an asymptotic procedure for solving the generalized kinetic equations of electrons and phonons, is proposed, which gives naturally the displaced Maxwellian at the leading order.

Generalized kinetic equations for a system of interacting atoms and photons: theory and simulations

In the present paper, we introduce generalized kinetic equations describing the dynamics of a system of interacting gas and photons obeying very general statistics. In the space homogeneous case, we

Auger Effect in the generalized kinetic theory of electrons and holes

In this paper we propose a model for a proper kinetic description of the Auger effect as a generation/recombination mechanism for electrons and holes in a bipolar device. Boltzmann-type equations for

Bipolar spintronics with generation-recombination of electrons and holes: Macroscopic equations

A new model based on an asymptotic procedure for solving the spinor kinetic equations of carriers and phonons is proposed, which gives naturally the displaced Maxwellian at the leading order. The

TLDR
It is shown that the Lorentz transformations impose also a proper one-parameter generalization of the classical Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon entropy, allowing a coherent and self-consistent relativistic statistical theory to be constructed, preserving the main features of the ordinary statistical theory, which is recovered in the classical limit.
