Charge-transport statistics in quantum conductors

Levitov L. S., Lesovik G. B.

The noise in a quantum resistor at *Τ *= 0 is described statistically over a long time interval *τ*_{ν} *— **fife **V. *The correlation functions of all orders are found. The distribution function of the transmitted charge is also found. The noise is determined by negative current pulses with a length shorter than *r*_{v}. They carry a charge which is a multiple of *e* = le^D*, where *D *is the transparency. The statistics of the pulses is binomial. This result corresponds to the probability distribution which arises as the result of a steady-state Bernoulli random process.
