We propose a new mathematical tool for the study of transport properties of models for lattice vibrations in crystalline solids. By replication of dynamical degrees of freedom, we aim at a new dynamical system where the “local” dynamics can be isolated and solved independently from the “global” evolution. The replication procedure is very generic but not unique as it depends on how the original dynamics are split between the local and global dynamics. As an explicit example, we apply the scheme… 

Harmonic Chain with Velocity Flips: Thermalization and Kinetic Theory

We consider the detailed structure of correlations in harmonic chains with pinning and a bulk velocity flip noise during the heat relaxation phase which occurs on diffusive time scales, for

Heat Flow in a Periodically Forced, Thermostatted Chain

We derive a macroscopic heat equation for the temperature of a pinned harmonic chain subject to a periodic force at its right side and in contact with a heat bath at its left side. The microscopic

Macroscopic evolution of mechanical and thermal energy in a harmonic chain with random flip of velocities

We consider an unpinned chain of harmonic oscillators with periodic boundary conditions, whose dynamics is perturbed by a random flip of the sign of the velocities. The dynamics conserves the total

Harmonic Chain with Velocity Flips: Thermalization and Kinetic Theory

We consider the detailed structure of correlations in harmonic chains with pinning and a bulk velocity flip noise during the heat relaxation phase which occurs on diffusive time scales, for

A new approach to Boltzmann’s ergodic hypothesis

The worst (in the sense of convergence to an equilibrium) many-particle Hamiltonian system is considered, namely, a linear system of dimension 2N for which there is an N-parameter family of invariant

Liouville ergodicity of linear multi-particle hamiltonian system with one marked particle velocity flips

We consider multi-particle systems with linear deterministic hamiltonian dynamics. Besides Liouville measure it has continuum of invariant tori and thus continuum of invariant measures. But if one

Quantitative control of Wasserstein distance between Brownian motion and the Goldstein--Kac telegraph process

In this manuscript, we provide a non-asymptotic process level control between the telegraph process and the Brownian motion with suitable diffusivity constant via a Wasserstein distance with

Heat conduction in disordered harmonic lattices with energy-conserving noise.

The conductivity of the one-dimensional system is studied both numerically and analytically and sheds some light on the effect of noise on the transport properties of systems with localized states caused by quenched disorder.

Fourier's Law for a Harmonic Crystal with Self-Consistent Stochastic Reservoirs

We consider a d-dimensional harmonic crystal in contact with a stochastic Langevin type heat bath at each site. The temperatures of the “exterior” left and right heat baths are at specified values

Hydrodynamic limit for the velocity-flip model

We review the proof of the hydrodynamic limit for the velocity-flip model which is given in Simon (Stoch Process Appl 123:3623–3662, 2013). We study the diffusive scaling limit for a chain of N

Fourier’s Law for a Microscopic Model of Heat Conduction

We consider a chain of N harmonic oscillators perturbed by a conservative stochastic dynamics and coupled at the boundaries to two gaussian thermostats at different temperatures. The stochastic

Fourier's Law: a Challenge for Theorists

We present a selective overview of the current state of our knowledge (more precisely of ourignorance) regarding the derivation of Fourier's Law, ${\bf J}(\br) =-\kappa {\bf \nabla}T(\br)$; ${\bf J}$

Harmonic Systems with Bulk Noises

We consider a harmonic chain in contact with thermal reservoirs at different temperatures and subject to bulk noises of different types: velocity flips or self-consistent reservoirs. While both
