The electrical conductivity of a hydrogen plasma for parameter values of temperature and pressure where the plasma is partially ionized is determined not only by scattering between free carriers, but is influenced also by the occurrence of bound states. The general methods to calculate the electrical conductivity of a plasma were described in chapters 3. and 4. In this chapter, we give explicit results for the partially ionized hydrogen plasma which take into account bound states as well as the scattering of the free particles by the bound states. Especially the influence of bound states on the conductivity was discussed within the frame of linear response theory in section 3.3.7. The main results of this approach are summarized below. In chapter 4. generalized quantum kinetic equations are given, which include the effects of the formation, the decay and the scattering of H-atoms in the three-particle collisions.
