We study numerically the thermal conductivity of single-walled carbon nanotubes for the cases of an isolated nanotube and a nanotube interacting with a substrate. We employ two different numerical methods: (i) direct modeling of the heat transfer by molecular-dynamics simulations and (ii) analysis of the equilibrium dynamics by means of the Green-Kubo formalism. For the numerical modeling of the effective interatomic interactions, we employ both the Brenner potentials and the intermolecular...[Show more]
