Survey of the circuit-to-Hamiltonian construction and Kitaev's proof that local Hamiltonian is QMA complete:

Dorit Aharonov, Tomer Naveh, "Quantum NP - A Survey" (https://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0210077)

More conceptual explanations of the above in Sections 1-3 of Dorit Aharonov, Itai Arad and Thomas Vidick, "The Quantum PCP Conjecture" (http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.7495)

(section 1.3 explains the connection between QMA hardness and the time of relaxation to the Gibbs state or ground state. Section 3 explains the difficulties in Kitaev's proof of QMA completeness of the local Hamiltonian problem)
