Abstract

In this paper a review is presented of some of our recent work on the theory of Fröhlich polarons. The following subjects are treated:
  1. I.

    On the (Absence of) “Phase Transitions” for Fröhlich Polarons (ℋ=o)

     
  2. II.

    Statistical Properties of Polarons in a Magnetic Field

     
  3. III.
    Polaronic Transport
    1. III.1.

      Ohmic Limit, Boltzmann Equation

       
    2. III.2.

      The “3/2 kT” Problem in the Low Temperature Polaron Mobility Theory

       
    3. III.3

      Velocity Distribution of Polarons in Crossed Electric and Magnetic Fields

       
     
  4. IV.

    Energy Levels of Bound Polarons
