We study transport properties of weakly interacting one-dimensional electron systems including on an equal footing thermal equilibration due to three-particle collisions and the effects of large-scale inhomogeneities. We show that equilibration in an inhomogeneous quantum wire is characterized by the competition of interaction processes which reduce the electrons total momentum and such which change the number of right- and left-moving electrons. We find that the combined effect of interactions… Expand

Thermal conductivity for one-dimensional electronic fluids is studied, finding that at lowest frequencies or longest length scales, the thermal transport is dominated by Lévy flights of low-momentum bosons that lead to a fractional scaling of heat conductivity with the frequency ω and system size L.
