The high-temperature, normal-state resistivity of strong-coupled superconducting transition-metal compounds saturates at a value corresponding to an electron mean free path of the order of the interatomic spacing in the compound. This accounts for the nonlinear temperature dependence of the resistivity observed in these compounds at high temperature. © 1976 The American Physical Society.
