Theory of Random Heterogeneous Materials
The theoretical prediction of the transport, electromagnetic, and mechanical properties of heterogeneous materials has a long and venerable history, attracting the attention of some of the luminaries of science, including Maxwell , Rayleigh , and Einstein . Since the early work on the physical properties of heterogeneous materials, there has been an explosion in the literature on this subject [4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] because of the rich and challenging fundamental problems it offers and its manifest technological importance.
