Electron-Electron Interaction and Coulomb Blockade

  • Dmitry A. RyndykEmail author
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 184)


The effects of electron-electron interaction in the case of weak coupling to the electrodes or weak coupling between the parts of the system are discussed. The Hubbard-Anderson and constant-interaction models are introduced. The model and equations for single electron tunneling and the Coulomb blockade are presented.
