Carrier transport in disordered systems is often treated theoretically using random hopping models. When the host medium is a polymer above its glass transition temperature such theories have to be modified to account for microscopic structural changes in the polymer on the experimental timescale. This paper describes the results obtained to date for models that take into account this dynamic nature of the disorder, and their applications to ionic motion in polymeric ionic conductors.
