Abstract

We analyze the effects of boundary conditions on the evolution of ballistic heat transport in four theoretical models and propose that a Fourier equation with an effective sizedependent thermal conductivity is a good candidate for the description of ballistic transport when boundary conditions are suitably imposed.
