The electrical conductivity of a fully ionized gas is analyzed based on the Fokker-Planck equation. It is found to have nonlinear characteristics if the impressed electric field is not restricted to be very small. The electrical conductivity of both dc and ac cases is investigated and the critical conditions are discussed. A convenient way of obtaining an approximate conductivity is also presented.
