An Analysis of Low- Temperature Resistivity of a Metal Having Magnetic Impurities

Amarendra Rajput, Senamaw Mequanent, Getachew Abebe


This paper presents the microscopic theory of low-temperature resistivity level of a metal that encompasses the magnetic impurities that utilize the second quantization technique and the theory of timedependent perturbation up to the second order in the Hamiltonian's spin-exchange. The calculation of the scattering transition rate is in the first and second order estimates bearing in mind the processes of non-spin-flip and spin-flip. During the second-order spin-flip calculation, there is the exposure of the Kondo effect. Additionally, after the calculations and the exposure of the Kondo effect, the results are in support of the experimental observations.
