This paper consists of a new formalism in order to interpret the electron-hole recombination rate in semiconductors by means of linear algebraic methods; a formulation based on tensorial concepts introduced in a unique way. The methodology introduced here represents an interesting tool to evaluate certain properties of semiconductors from a theoretical point of view.
