We present a first-principles approach to describe electronic transport of disordered alloys in a material specific way. The electronic structure is represented in terms of the relativistic multiple scattering KKR-Green function. Disorder with possible inclusion of short-ranged order effects is taken into account by the coherent-potential approximation or its non-local formulation. A salient feature of the presented method is the possibility to combine it with a linear response Kubo framework… CONTINUE READING
