Transport properties of one dimensional correlated
electrons have been studied via the Luttinger
liquid model [1,2]. Some of the results found are
presented here. For a pure Luttinger liquid (no
barriers) the non-local conductivity is determined.
The frequency dependent conductance is calculated in
the presence of a longitudinal monochromatic electric
field, applied to a finite interval of the system. We
treat several forms of the interaction potential with
finite range. The conductance, as a function of the
frequency, shows features that are a signature of
elementary excitations. They can be interpreted in
terms of a quantum capacitance and inductance. The
influence of a finite range of the interactions is also
studied for a tunnel barrier in a Luttinger liquid. The
non linear DC conductance shows a charging energy
associated to the tunnel barrier. This provides a
microscopic understanding of earlier phenomenological
approaches. The dependence of the charging energy on
the strength and the range of the interactions is
