We highlight a number of interesting properties of nonlinear chains consisting of masses that interact via anharmonic springs. In particular, we focus on the effects of a thermal environment and on the role that thermal fluctuations may play in energy localization and propagation in these chains. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
