Title: Where next for applied mathematics and mechanics in heterogeneous media applications?
Abstract: Heterogeneous media are ubiquitous in the world around us. They occur naturally in the form of geological and biological materials for example, and we are now able to produce an incredible array of synthetic media that exploit inhomogeneity over many length scales in order to give rise to material properties that even a couple of decades ago would have been considered unimaginable.
Despite the immense computational resource now available, theoretical applied mathematics and mechanics have continued to play an invaluable role in the field of heterogeneous media in the 21st century.
