Without such mechanisms we may not speak of the phonons at one end of the

crystal as being in thermal

**equilibrium**at a temperature T<z and those at theother end in

**equilibrium**at T\. It is not sufficient for thermal conductivity to haveonly a ...

In thermal

My = 0 ; M, = M 0 = XoB0 = CB0/T , (8) where the Curie constant C = Nii2/3ks as

defined by (15.14). The magnetization of a system of spins with / = £ is related to
