Computational modelling of materials behaviour is becoming a reliable tool of scientific investigation, complementary to traditional theory and experimentation. The Multiscale Materials Modelling (MMM) approach reflects the realization that continuum and atomistic analysis methods are complementary. This chapter describes the most popular numerical techniques of each component that make up the MMM paradigm for modelling nano- and micro-systems: Quantum Mechanics (QM), Molecular Dynamics (MD), Monte Carlo (MC), Dislocation Dynamics (DD), Statistical Mechanics (SM), and Continuum Mechanics (CM).

Keywords:   Multiscale Materials Modelling, quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics, dislocation dynamics, statistical mechanics, continuum mechanics
