Abstract

Starting from the quasiclassical formulation of the microscopic theory, the kinetic equations describing low-frequency, long-wavelength phenomena in quasi-one-dimensional conductors at low temperatures are derived. The solution of the equations in which electron-phonon and electron-impurity collisions are taken into account is used to derive the classical equation of motion for the phase of the order parameter.
