This review article presents a discussion of theoretical progress made over the past several decades towards our understanding of thermoelectric properties of materials. Particular emphasis is paid towards describing recent progress in 'tuning' phonon properties of nano-composite materials for gaining enhancement of the thermoelectric figure of merit.
