Abstract : We derived basic equations for basic electron scattering processes in narrow band gap semiconductors. However even in the case when the relaxation time approximation can be introduced a set of cumbersome integrals has to numerically calculated for intermediate degeneracy of an electron gas which is characteristic for narrow band gap semiconductors at liquid nitrogen temperature. As to the scattering by optical phonons the standard relaxation time approximation is, in general, not applicable.
