# Anomalous c-axis transport in layered metals - Condensed Matter Strongly Correlated Electrons

Abstract: Transport in metals with strongly anisotropic single-particle spectrum isstudied. Coherent band transport in all directions, described by the standardBoltzmann equation, is shown to withstand both elastic and inelastic scatteringas long as $E F\tau\gg 1$. A model of phonon-assisted tunneling via resonantstates located in between the layers is suggested to explain a non-monotonictemperature dependence of the c-axis resistivity observed in experiments.
