Abstract

In this chapter the main open issues that are behind this work are presented. In the first part it is explained why the standard tools of equilibrium statistical mechanics fail to give correct predictions when some non-equilibrium current is present. The second part is devoted to briefly summarize the models of granular material and anomalous transport handled in this work.
