A long standing problem of solid state theory is solved, being the derivation of a set of self-consistent one-particle equations for the interacting multicomponent hole gas of a semiconductor in an external potential. Combining effective mass theory with density functional theory, the Hohenberg-Kohn theorem is generalized and a set of generalized Kohn-Sham equations is obtained for the multicomponent gas. It is demonstrated how the exchange-correlation potential matrix may be calculated by the local density approximation. Explicit results are given for the γ 8 valence band holes of zinc blende type semiconductors.
