Title: Electron transport in a collisional plasma with multiple ion species

A generalization of the Braginskii electron fluid description [S. I. Braginskii, Sov. Phys. JETP 6, 358 (1958)] to the case of an unmagnetized collisional plasma with multiple ion species is presented. A description of the plasma ions with disparate masses is also discussed.
