Abstract: In recent years, the quantum thermal transport in nanostructures has drawn much attention. In this thesis, we aim to develop a rigorous and systematic formalism to study the thermal current and probability distribution of the energy transfer in a given time duration for both ballistic systems and nonlinear systems in terms of unified language of consistent quantum theory. The results may have significance on the systematic understanding of the quantum thermal transport carried by phonons, which can be readily extended to the transport by other kinds of particles such as electrons and photons. In addition, the insights into statistics aspect of the quantum thermal transport are provided by using microphysics model to approach the fluctuation theorem.
