This paper reviews some selected approaches to the description of transport properties in crystalline and disordered metallic systems. A detailed formulation of the electron transport processes in metallic systems within a model approach is given.

Basic principles are examined: the laws of thermodynamics and the concepts of temperature, work, heat, and entropy. Postulates of classical statistical mechanics, microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical distributions; lattice vibrations; etc.

In this book we describe a new non-perturbative approach to the fermionic many-body problem, which can be considered as a generalization to arbitrary dimensions of the well-known bosonization technique for one-dimensional fermions.
