Abstract

A density-matrix many-body theory for the description of the interacting electron-hole system in direct-gap semiconductors is presented. The Coulomb interaction between all electrons, the coupling to a quantized light field, and a reservoir of phonons are included. The theory is evaluated to compute the electron-hole and electron-electron correlation functions after initialization of the system as uncorrelated plasma. The dynamical development of pair correlations is discussed.
