Abstract

Multiscale modeling and computation has recently become one of the most active research areas in applied science. With rapidly growing computing power, we are increasingly more capable of modeling the details of physical processes. Nevertheless, we still face the challenge that the phenomena of interest are oftentimes the result of strong interaction between multiple spatial and temporal scales, and the physical processes are described by radically different models at different scales.
