Recent advances in our understanding of electronic conduction have pointed up deficiencies in traditional thinking. For a metal at a sufficiently low temperature, it is known both theoretically and experimentally that the conventional picture in terms of the Boltzmann theory breaks down. Improved understanding of both electron localization and the effects of electron-electron interactions in a disordered medium has led to experimentally verifiable predictions. These effects have an important influence on the nature of the metal-insulator transition.
