Description: We study classical heat conduction in a dissipative open system composed of interacting oscillators. By exactly solving a twisted Fokker-Planck equation which describes the full counting statistics of heat flux flowing through the system, we identify the geometric-phase-like effect and examine its impact on the classical heat transport. Particularly, we find that the nonlinear interaction as well as the closely related temperature-dependence of system-parameters are crucial in manifesting the geometric-phase contribution of heat flux. Finally, we propose an electronic experiment based on RC circuits to verify our theoretical predictions. *** Journal reference: Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 210603 (2012) ***
