Abstract: This cumulative habilitation thesis reports on recent advances in the field of calculating transport properties of warm dense matter with density functional theory and molecular dynamics simulations. Following an introduction into the research topic, the theoretical basics, including linear response theory, are presented. Then respective contributions of electrons and ions to the electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and viscosity of several example materials are evaluated and discussed.
