Title: THE CRITICAL PHONON SCATTERING AND PECULIARITIES OF THE TRANSPORT PHENOMENA IN FERROELECTRIC CRYSTAL
Author(s): V.I.Altukhov (North-Caucasian State Technical University, 355000 Stavropol, Russia), B.A.Strukov (Moscow State University, 119992 Moscow, Russia)

The review of the theoretical study of the critical phonon scattering and anomalous heat transport near the phase transition temperature $T_{\mathrm{c}}$ is presented. An interpretation and quantitative approach to the description of the anomalous temperature dependence of the thermal conductivity $\lambda(T)$ near $T_{\mathrm{c}}$ are discussed.

Key words: ferroelectrics, phase transitions, critical phonon scattering, heat transport theory, soft-phonon mode, central peak
