An expression was obtained for the steady states which is more general than that given previously AD013557, and studies were initiated toward developing a theory of electrical resistance at very low temperatures. The system consists of an electron and a lattice with its spectrum of normal modes, or phonons. A theoretical treatment concerning the resonance states existing between the lattice and electron is presented using a Hamiltonian which involves 3 terms the electron in the lattice field, the phonons, and the interaction between the electron and phonons that occurs because of the phonon modulations of the lattice potential.
