This book tells about thermal processes in nanolarge scale systems. The author analyses classical and modern ideas of nano objects thermophysics. He describes mechanisms of heat transfer in various nanostructures, heat conductivity calculation methods, including nanowires, nanotubes, nanocomposites and nanoliquids. A reader would find the analysis of radiation heat transfer at nanoscales. Special attention is paid to the role of interphase borders and dimensional (classical and quantum) effects resulting in peculiarities and anomalies of heat transfer as well as to the current condition of intensively developing thermophysics areas such as nanothermohydrodynamics and nanothermoelectricity.

The book is intended for students, graduate students and experts in the fields of physics of a solid body, nanoscience and nanotechnologies, physics and equipment of low temperatures, power and thermophysics.
