In science:

Setting the collector−granule distance dc , parameter β = Γe /Γc and using the recurrent relation (26) for Eq. (27), it is possible to calculate the reduced dc current eI ≡ I /(eP0Γe ).

The largest quantities ∆Vg correspond to the magic granules, for which ∆ε 6= 0.
On the current gap of single-electron transistors
The probability P−1 prevails over P+1 , because the “granule−collector” stream is more than a “emitter−granule” one and the granule is charged positively (i.e. n < 0).
