Absence of local thermal equilibrium in two models of heat conduction

Preprint English OPEN
Dhar, Abhishek; Dhar, Deepak;
(1998)

A crucial assumption in the conventional description of thermal conduction is the existence of local thermal equilibrium. We test this assumption in two simple models of heat conduction. Our first model is a linear chain of planar spins with nearest neighbour couplings,... View more
