It is implicitly assumed that the more detailed, and consequently more realistic, a computer simulation is, the more useful it will be in decision-making. However, this idea is by no means justified. Different types of computer simulations have to be differentiated, which in turn requires the specific skill of understanding computer simulation results.

The articles in this section examine the capabilities and limits of simulation results in political and social contexts, exploring the art of understanding computer simulation results. The Art of Knowing through Computer Simulations? What kind of knowledge is gained through computer simulations is the key question in this section.
Computer simulations are often compared to experiments or to arguments, and the transformation of our traditional scientific notions might be more challenging than expected — these Ideas are put forward in the third section to conceptualize the art of knowing through computer simulations. Book This volume is an excellent resource for professionals in various areas of applications of mathematics, modeling, and computational science.
It focuses on recent progress and modern challenges in these areas. The volume provides a balance between fundamental theoretical and applied developments, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of modern trends and detailing state-of-the-art achievements in Applied Mathematics, Modeling, and Computational Science. Topics in the Mathematical Modelling of Composite Materials.

Andrej V. Cherkaev and Robert V. Kohn In the past twenty years we have witnessed a renaissance of theoretical work on the macroscopic behavior of microscopically heterogeneous mate rials. This activity brings together a number of related themes, including: 1 the use of weak convergence as a rigorous yet general language for the discussion of macroscopic behavior; 2 interest in new types of questions, particularly the "G-closure problem," motivated in large part by applications of optimal control theory to structural optimization; 3 the introduction of new methods for bounding effective moduli, including one based on "com pensated compactness"; and 4 the identification of deep links between the analysis of microstructures and the multidimensional calculus of variations.
This work has implications for many physical problems involving optimal design, composite materials, and coherent phase transitions.

As a result it has received attention and support from numerous scientific communities, including engineering, materials science, and physics as well as mathematics. There is by now an extensive literature in this area. But for various reasons certain fundamental papers were never properly published, circu lating instead as mimeographed notes or preprints.
Other work appeared in poorly distributed conference proceedings volumes. Still other work was published in standard books or journals, but written in Russian or French. The net effect is a sort of "gap" in the literature, which has made the subject unnecessarily difficult for newcomers to penetrate. Rushi Kumar. This meeting brought together researchers from around the world to share their work, with the aim of promoting collaboration as a means of solving various problems in modern science and engineering. The authors of each chapter present a research problem, techniques suitable for solving it, and a discussion of the results obtained.
These volumes will be of interest to both theoretical- and application-oriented individuals in academia and industry. Papers in Volume I are dedicated to active and open areas of research in algebra, analysis, operations research, and statistics, and those of Volume II consider differential equations, fluid mechanics, and graph theory.
