Electronic Transport in Metallic Systems and Generalized Kinetic Equations
by A.L. Kuzemsky
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 101
This paper reviews some selected approaches to the description of transport properties, mainly electroconductivity, in crystalline and disordered metallic systems. A detailed qualitative theoretical formulation of the electron transport processes in metallic systems within a model approach is given. Generalized kinetic equations which were derived by the method of the nonequilibrium statistical operator are used.

These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.

These notes provide a self-contained introduction to field theoretic methods employed in the study of classical and quantum phase transitions. Classical phase transitions occur at a regime where quantum fluctuations do not play an important role.

We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities.

This is a set of lecture notes of a course on statistical physics and thermodynamics, oriented towards electrical engineering students. The main body of the lectures is devoted to statistical physics, whereas much less emphasis is on thermodynamics.
