Electronic Transport in Metallic Systems and Generalized Kinetic Equations
by A.L. Kuzemsky
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 101
This paper reviews some selected approaches to the description of transport properties, mainly electroconductivity, in crystalline and disordered metallic systems. A detailed qualitative theoretical formulation of the electron transport processes in metallic systems within a model approach is given. Generalized kinetic equations which were derived by the method of the nonequilibrium statistical operator are used.

Statistical physics is a highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear systems are beyond our present understanding and theoretical tools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with the central issues of statistical mechanics.

The author illustrates non-equilibrium statistical physics by presenting a number of current and paradigmatic examples of systems that are out of equilibrium, and elucidates the range of techniques available to solve these systems.
