Classical continuum models are often insufficient to predict the complex phenomena that emerge in the problems described above due their inherent multiscale nature. On the other hand, mesoscale and atomistic models have the potential to predict such phenomena, but often cannot extend into experimentally measurable spatial and temporal scales. Therefore, the material involved is modeled using a combination of a coarse scale model and a fine scale model. This modeling paradigm which is commonly referred to as multiscale modeling is playing an increasingly important role in scientific and industrial applications. The central theme of my research to date is to understand the link between the existing hierarchy of models, which is a precursor to developing robust multiscale methods.
