Friction and Forced Flow: Collective Transport in Disordered Media

  • D. S. Fisher
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 69)


Various problems of non-linear collective transport through disordered media are discussed, using sliding charge density waves as a paradigm. These systems all exhibit features of nonlinear dynamics, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena.
