Electron Charge Distribution and Transport in Mesoscopic Systems
We discuss the electronic transport in one-dimensional systems and show how the conductance at zero temperature is related to the electronic charge distribution, using an generalized form of Friedel sum rule. We apply the theory to the transport through a quantum dots. It is predicted that the transmission probability is unity when the dot has a magnetic moment of magnitude 1/2 due to an unpaired electron.
