Effect of the coherent backscattering of the conduction electrons in three-dimensional structurally disordered metals specified by the Ioffe-Regel criterion is considered within the framework of the Morgan-Howson-Šaub theory of localisation which is based on the generalised kinetic equation for the Wigner distribution function and effective medium approximation. A formula for the electrical resistivity including the weak localisation correction is expressed in terms of the dimensionless transport parameter k_{F}l. The asymptotic form of the formula is derived and discussed in the context of the diagrammatic approach. |
