Abstract

The scaling theory of conduction has created much interest in the problem of conduction in a disordered system. Basic to this theory is the assumption that a one-parameter scaling function exists. An experimental test of this is presented for two-dimensional transport in silicon inversion layers. The results are found to be inconsistent with such an assumption and the authors conclude that the function does not exist.
