Format: Hardcover
The primary objective of this volume is to reflect the-state-of-the art in multiscale mathematics, modeling and simulations and to address the following barriers: What is the information that needs to be transferred from one model or scale to another and what physical principles must be satisfied during the transfer of information? What are the optimal ways to achieve such transfer of information? How to quantify variability of physical parameters at multiple scales and how to account for it to ensure design robustness?

Various multiscale approaches in space and time presented in this Volume are grouped into two main categories: information-passing and concurrent.
In the concurrent approaches described in Chapters 4-6, various scales are simultaneously resolved, whereas in the information-passing methods(sometimes referred to as hierarchical or sequential methods), the fine scale is modeled and its gross response is infused into the coarse scale. Chapter 4 focuses on linking continuum and discrete scales, whereas in Chapter 5 attention is restricted to concurrent linking of discrete scales. Mathematical analysis of some of the concurrent methods is given in Chapter 6. The state-of-the-art spatial information-passing method is described in Chapter 1-3 with Chapter 2 devoted to systems with self-similar microstructure, Chapter 3 focuses on reducing computational complexity of information-passing methods, and Chapter 1 on mathematical analysis of some of information-passing methods. Progress in the space-time information-passing methods is featured in Chapters 8 and 9. A unified concurrent-information-passing framework which in principle is not limited by such conditions is provided in Chapter 7.
