Abstract

The question of the appropriate form and validity of the effective-mass approximation when applied to semiconductor heterostructures is adressed. The position dependence of the effective mass m(r) raises the question of the appropriate form of the kinetic operator, and in strained heterostructures the possible spatial variation of the lattice constant a(r) introduces further complications.
