About this series
SpringerBriefs in Mathematics of Materials introduces in a compact format recent topics in materials science where mathematical ideas are essential.
Materials science has developed in interdisciplinary study and has dealt with complex multiscale systems in multiphysics in an ad hoc manner until recently. Now a new phase of materials science with mathematical and computational tools is emerging in response to developments in the high-performance computing century. This series is intended for mathematicians, physicists, and other scientists, as well as doctoral students in related areas.
