Continual stochastic description of systems with chemical reactions in the presence of a long-range interaction and concentration dependence of the electrical conductivity of electrolytes

  • V. S. Lutovinov
  • V. R. Chechetkin


It has been shown that recombination-dissociation processes influence the relaxation correction to the concentration dependence of the conductivity of electrolytes. A theoretical treatment has been carried out in the framework of the continual stochastic formalism of birth-and-death processes with a long-range interaction. Evaluations of the observed effects have been given and the possibility of their experimental measurement has been discussed. The question of the concentration dependence of the Hall effect has also been considered.
