From crystals to glasses: a new unified theory for heat transport

Theoretical physicists from SISSA and the University of California at Davis lay brand new foundations to such a fundamental process as heat transport in materials, which finally allow crystals, polycrystalline solids, alloys, and glasses to be treated on the same solid footing.┬áThis feat opens the way to the numerical simulation of the thermal properties of … Read more From crystals to glasses: a new unified theory for heat transport
