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.

We consider some mathematical questions about Boltzmann equations for quantum particles, relativistic or non relativistic. Relevant cases such as Bose, Bose-Fermi, and photon-electron gases are studied. We also consider some simplifications ...

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.
