We present a first-principles theoretical approach to calculate the lattice thermal conductivity of diamond based on an exact solution of the Boltzmann transport equation. Density-functional perturbation theory is employed to generate the harmonic and third-order anharmonic interatomic force constants that are required as input. A central feature of this approach is that it provides accurate ...
