In this book, heat transfer in solids is studied with modern computational methods, which explicitly simulate microscopic heat carriers or phonons. Atomistic simulations, particularly molecular dynamics techniques, allow us to generate a large amount of data documenting how atoms vibrate around defects or under mechanical deformation. By processing these data with statistical physics methods, we are able to relate the motion of hundreds of thousands of atoms to measurable thermal properties of the structure.
