Homework Help: Hole orbits

  1. Mar 30, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I am so confused about what a "hole orbit" is in condensed matter physics. I can identify it in the reduced zone scheme but what does it mean physically?
    Also, my book talks about open orbits which I am also confused about. Are open orbits subsets of hole orbits or are they subsets of electron orbits or both or are they subsets of neither? I have no idea? I am so confused!?!?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
