The main aim in this chapter is to link the transport parameters with the temperature and nanowaveguide dimensions . This is achieved by formulating the problem in such a way as to include the Fermi–Dirac distribution function (FDF)  as initial or boundary condition. The statement of the problem naturally implies that the geometry of conductors should possess cylindrical symmetry for nanowires, so that the dimension parameter is the radius, or specified for other interesting cases, for example a point contact for tunnel microscopy [1]. More complicated geometries are treated in [2].
