  2. The Wiedemann-Franz (WF) law establishes a link between heat and charge transport due to electrons in solids. The extent of its validity in presence of inelastic scattering is a question raised in different contexts. We report on a study of the electrical, \sigma, and thermal, \kappa, conductivities in WP_2 single crystals. The WF holds at 2 K, but a downward deviation rapidly emerges upon warming. At 13 K, there is an exceptionally large mismatch between Lorenz number and the Sommerfeld value. We show that this is driven by a fivefold discrepancy between the T-square prefactors of electrical and thermal resistivities,more »both caused by electron-electron scattering. This implies the existence of abundant small-scattering-angle collisions between electrons, due to strong screening. By quantifying the relative frequency of collisions conserving momentum flux, but degrading heat flux, we identify a narrow temperature window where the hierarchy of scattering times may correspond to the hydrodynamic regime.« less
