Using ab initio calculations and linear response theory, we study the spin-disorder resistivity (SDR) at the Earth's core conditions. The SDR is caused by the scattering of electrons on fluctuating local moments that are stabilized at high temperatures by the magnetic entropy. As an illustration we consider bcc iron. We find a relatively large SDR of order 25 μΩcm but its contribution to the total resisistivity including also phonons is strongly suppressed at high temperatures, leading thus to a large violation of the Matthiessen rule. We also briefly discuss the effects of non-magnetic impurities.
