How to cite

If you use ShengBTE and/or thirdorder.py, we kindly ask you to cite us. The necessary information is contained in this BibTeX entry:

@article{ShengBTE_2014,
   author={Wu Li and Jes\'us Carrete and Nebil A. Katcho and Natalio Mingo},
   title={{ShengBTE:} a solver of the {B}oltzmann transport equation for phonons},

}

Additionally, the locally adaptive Gaussian approximation for the delta function and the method for studying nanowires used by ShengBTE was developed in the reference:

@article{PhysRevB.85.195436,
   author={Wu Li and Natalio Mingo and Lucas Lindsay and David A. Broido and Derek A. Stewart and Nebil A. Katcho},
   title={Thermal conductivity of diamond nanowires from first principles},
   journal={Phys. Rev. B},
   volume={85},
   pages={195436},
   year={2012}
}

The symmetrisation of the 3rd-order force constants in thirdorder.py employs the Lagrange multiplier method developed in:

@article{PhysRevB.86.174307,
   author={Wu Li and Lucas Lindsay and David A. Broido and Derek A. Stewart and Natalio Mingo},
   title={Thermal conductivity of bulk and nanowire Mg${}_{2}$Si${}_{x}$Sn${}_{1$-${}x}$ alloys from first principles},
   journal={Phys. Rev. B},
   volume={86},
   pages={174307},
   year = {2012}
}
