Theory and Application of Inverse Transport Coefficients
Self-diffusion in a classical liquid. Here the diffusion constant D is related to a friction constant ζ. In turn, ζ is connected with the force-force correlation function.
The electrical resistivity of a classical plasma. The quantum-mechanical generalization of the forceforce correlation function is then introduced. This correlation function is shown explicitly to lead to the correct electrical resistivity of metals and metallic alloys for
Dilute impurity scattering, both in the Born approximation and for arbitrary phase shifts.
Weak scattering (Ziman) theory of liquid metals Approximations applicable under strong scattering conditions are also outlined.
The Kondo effect arising from conduction electron scattering from a localized magnetic moment.
