Deriving the thermal conductivity of graphene

  1. Oct 24, 2011 #1
    How do I go about deriving the thermal conductivity of graphene (specifically, in the low temperature limit) when I'm given the phonon dispersion relation?

    I haven't been able to find anything explaining how the dispersion relation relates to the thermal conductivity in materials. (this is for a solid state physics course)
