Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in California

Commercial lease - landlord's duty to mitigate

My understanding is that under the Calif civil code, a commercial landlord has a duty to mitigate (re-lease) if tenant abandons the premises. Is this correct and can this provision of the law be waived by the landlord's written lease? Thank you very much.
