We calculate, using the Landauer formula, the dc resistance of a class of deterministic one dimensional models with slowly spatially varying potentials which have recently been shown to exhibit metal-insulator transitions. The mobility edge behavior of the model is directly confirmed using a tight-binding as well as a Krönig-Penny model. Effects of temperature and random disorder are included in our calculations. The state at the mobility edge is found to have the intermediate fractal character of critical states associated with singular continuous spectra.
