Correction to: Communications Physics https://doi.org/10.1038/s42005-020-00442-x, published online 9 October 2020.
The original version of this Article contained one sentence in the fifth paragraph of the section “Methods: Collision integrals”, which read: “The Kernel function K(ε, ε', ε'', ε'') is the average square of the electron–electrontermines the average e–e quasiparticle lifetime of electronic states on the constant energy surface ε”.
The new version replaces this sentence with: “The Kernel function K(ε, ε', ε'', ε'') is the average square of the electron–electron matrix element between electrons on a constant energy surface ε with electronic states on constant energy surfaces defined by ε', ε'', and ε'' . The Kernel function determines the average e–e quasi-particle lifetime of electronic states on the constant energy surface ε.”
The above have been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
