Electron and holes are Fermions (particles with spin 1/2). This means that no two particles can share the same microstate. The Fermi-Dirac distribution describes how Fermions fill the available states consistent with this property. Bosons on the other hand (particles with integer spin) can occupy the same state. The Bose-Einstein distribution describes how ...
