About this book


This volume is devoted to an actual topic which is the focus world-wide of various research groups. It contains contributions describing the material behavior on different scales, new existence and uniqueness theorems, the formulation of constitutive equations for advanced materials. The main emphasis of the contributions is directed on the following items
- Modelling and simulation of natural and artificial materials with significant microstructure,
- Generalized continua as a result of multi-scale models,
- Multi-field actions on materials resulting in generalized material models,
- Theories including higher gradients, and 
- Comparison with discrete modelling approaches
