Abstract

Recent results on the semiclassical dynamics of an electron in a solid are explained using techniques developed for "exotic" Galilean dynamics. The system is indeed Hamiltonian and Liouville's theorem holds for the symplectic volume form. Suitably defined quantities satisfy hydrodynamic equations.
