Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 152)


The common features in the electronic structure and transport properties of pure group V semimetals and of pristine graphite are discussed. Comparison is also made between the effect of doping the group V semimetals or intercalating pristine graphite on the band structure, the electrical and thermal conductivities, and the thermopower.
