Could someone introduce books or reviews on electron-electron interaction to me? Especially its effects on screening and transport?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Hmm... seems a bit broad of a question? An answer might be "any chemistry textbook"? –  genneth Oct 31 '12 at 17:40
Any book on Many Body Quantum Theory will do the job. Try "Many Particle Physics" by Mahan or have a look here: physics.stackexchange.com/questions/22046/… –  DaniH Oct 31 '12 at 18:34

This is a too broad topic. Feynman devotes the chapter "Interaction of several electrons" of his book on "Quantum electrodynamics" to this topic, including the derivation of the potentials and the role of the Feynman delta $\delta_{+}$.

Screening is discussed in standard statistical mechanics textbooks, which give both screened Coulomb potentials. You can this information online as well.
