Local Moments and the Localization of Electrons in Liquids

An understanding of the electronic properties of liquids is a goal of considerable current interest, see e.g. [1,2]. The conventional theoretical methods of crystalline solid state physics must be transcended, with explicit account taken of both the disorder and local structure characteristic of the liquid state. In addition, an independent electron description is not generally adequate to account for observed properties, and the effects of electron-electron interactions require consideration.
