Thermal conductivity and weak coupling (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We investigate the macroscopic thermal conductivity of a chain of anharmonic oscillators and more general systems, under weak coupling limits and energy conserving stochastic perturbations of the dynamics. In particular we establish a series expansion in the coupling parameter.
