Homogenization Methods for Multiscale MechanicsA new book by Professor Chiang C. Mei and co-author Bogdan Vernescu of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, “Homogenization Methods for Multiscale Mechanics” (World Scientific, 2010), provides researchers with a concrete treatment of the theory of homogenization — deriving averaged equations for a much larger scale based on considerations at the small scale — for treating inhomogeneous media. The book illustrates the use of homogenization for a broad range of physical problems.
