What course is this?

What do the symbols mean?
This is for solid state physics.

n0 represents the number of electrons in a semiconductor. p0 represents the number of holes in a semi conductor.

NA represents the number of positive (acceptor) ions. ND represents the number of negative (donor) ions.

ni=pi=n0=p0 in an instrinsic semiconductor.
