A five-unit online course that develops a unified framework for understanding essential physics that govern materials at atomic scales and relate these processes to the macroscopic world. The course will cover important applications, trends, and directions.This course provides a detailed presentation of the computational methods used to treat energy transport and conversion in the atomic and nanoscales. The methods include lattice dynamics, molecular dynamics, first principles calculations, Boltzmann transport equation, Monte Carlo methods, and machine learning. Energy transport by four energy carriers, i.e., phonons, electrons, photons, and molecules, will be covered. Thermal, mechanical, electrical, and optical properties will be predicted, and the effects of spatial confinement on these properties will be introduced. Relevant applications such as thermal management, thermoelectrics, laser-matter interaction, and energy storage will be included.
