The electron-phonon interactions can be handled with a quasi-classical approximation. Both charge and energy transport and their interplay can be studied. We compare the MD results with those of a fully quantum mechanical nonequilibrium Green's function (NEGF) approach for the electron currents. We find a ballistic to diffusive transition of the electron conduction in one-dimensional chains as the chain length increases. © 2009 IOP Publishing Ltd.||Source Title:||Journal of Physics Condensed Matter||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/96121||ISSN:||09538984||DOI:||10.1088/0953-8984/21/2/025503|
