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.

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. We illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.

We give a self-contained introduction to the quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. We focus in general on the behavior of so-called quantum liquids, i.e., quantum gases and liquids.
