i) Graphene is a semimetal which shows a finite conductivity even in the absence of carriers. Transport in very clean, ballistic graphene, is due to evanescent waves, the so called "pseudiffusive regime". We discuss how electron-electron interactions modify this regime, and lead to a variety of temperature and magnetic field dependences.

ii) The graphene lattice is extremely stiff, having one of the largest Young modulus of all materials. Suspended samples behave as membranes, and anharmonic effects lead to the renormalization of the elastic properties. We show experimental and theoretical results which suggest that the stiffness of suspended graphene depends on geometry and sample dimensions, and its value can exceed the present accepted value, or tend to zero.
