The Anderson theory of heterojunctions is reviewed with particular reference to the derivation of the affinity rule. We consider in detail the fundamental assumptions on which the Anderson model is based, analyzing arguments which either confirm or dispute these underlying ideas. An alternate model is then proposed. and again discuss the arguments for and against. Our conclusion is that further work must be done both theoretically and experimentally before a definite determination can be made as to the more appropriate of these two theories.
