Title: Anomalous thermal conduction and Levy processes * Colloquium on Complex and Biological Systems

Time: Fri, Dec 14, 2012, 10:15am

Place: bldg 28, room 0.108

Abstract:
The general scenario for heat conduction in classical one-dimensional systems is briefly reviewed. Then a linear stochastic model is introduced, which is able to reproduce the main features of nonlinear deterministic systems and is amenable to an analytic treatment. Finally, the problem of reproducing the temperature profile is addressed showing that it is the result of a Levy process in an open finite domain.
