Abstract

The geometric ideas underlying the Berry phase and the modern viewpoint of Karplus and Lut-tinger's theory of the anomalous Hall effect are discussed in an elementary way. We briefly review recent Hall and Nernst experiments which support the dominant role of the KL velocity term in ferromagnets.
