Android USB/HID Keyboard equivalents to physical Keyboard.

Does anyone have a conversion library or at least know what the HOME and BACK button USB/HID equvialents would be from an Android tablet (Google Nexus 7) to a physical keyboard would be?

For examble, I have a USB/HID or Bluetooth Keyboard connected to an Android tablet and yes the letter A on the physically connected external keyboard types a letter A on the Android tablet. Arrow keys on the physically connected external keyboard navigate properly also, but what would the HOME button Android Tablet be on the physically connected external keyboard? Also the BACK button?

Thanks

I use External Keyboard Helper from the PlayStore.  You can customize keyboard mappings for BACK and HOME and other buttons as well.  The main thing I got it for was because every time I connected my bluetooth keyboard, my Galaxy Note 2 would revert back to the default Samsung keyboard.  This program could detect when a external keyboard is attached and bring up the keyboard selection dialog.
