The electrodynamic features of the multiband model are examined using the transverse equation of motion approach in order to give the explanation of several long-standing problems. It turns out that the exact summation of the most singular terms in powers of 1/ω^n leads to the total optical conductivity which, in the zero-frequency limit, reduces to the results of the Boltzmann equation, both for the metallic and semiconducting two-band regime. The detailed calculations have been carried out for the quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) two-band model corresponding to the imperfect charge-density-wave (CDW) nesting. It is also shown that the results of the present treatment of the impurity-scattering processes for the DC conductivity of the ordered CDW state are in agreement with the experimental observation. Finally, the DC and optical conductivity are calculated numerically for a few typical Q1D cases.
