|| Macroscopic heat transport from microscopic dynamics
|| Stefano Olla (Université Paris Dauphine, France)
One of the main problems in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics is to obtain, under a space-time scaling, heat equation from a Hamitonian system of interacting particles. Some progress can be done if the microscopic dynamics is perturbed by energy conservative random forces. I will review recent results in this direction.
