Thermopower in the correlated hopping regime

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The high-temperature limit for the thermopower of a system of interacting localized carriers is governed entirely by the entropy change per added carrier. The calculation of this quantity reduces to a simple combinatorial problem dependent only on the density of carriers and the interactions stronger than the thermal energy. We have thus been able to generalize the Heikes formula to include several cases of interacting Fermi systems with spin.
