Multiscale Methods: Bridging the Scales in Science and Engineering

Jacob Fish

Abstract

Small scale features and processes occurring at nanometer and femtosecond scales have a profound impact on what happens at larger space and time scales. In view of the increasing need of understanding and controlling the behavior of products and processes at multiple scales, multiscale modeling and simulation has emerged as one of the focal research areas in applied science and engineering. The primary objective of this volume is to present 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 tr ...

Keywords: multiscale, concurrent, hierarchical, uncertainty, upscaling
