Research output: Chapter in BookChapterResearchpeer-review


© 2016, Springer International Publishing Switzerland. We close this book with some perspectives on open problems to be further analyzed. The first of them is, of course, the detailed microscopic understanding of the generalized transport equations, starting from phonon kinetic theory, and using several different techniques to work out approximate solutions of it. Several factors to be taken into account would be, for instance, the role of detailed phonon dispersion relations, the frequency and the temperature dependence of the phonon collision times, the role of the different effective phonon mean-free paths, the slip heat flow along the walls, and so on.
