Transport Theory for Extended and Localized States

Abstract

The study of electron transport in severely disordered systems is only just beginning. A general understanding of the behavior of simple liquid metals may be obtained from Boltzmann transport theory, which we review in Section 10.2. This is a good place to start because, apart from having application to liquid metals, we may also put the results in a form having wider validity than their derivation might suggest. In particular we find that the static conductivity and thermopower may be expressed as Kubo-Greenwood equations.(1) These equations have been used a great deal to analyze transport data for amorphous semiconductors, as we discuss in Section 10.3.
