Advances in technology and materials science have required constitutive modeling of modern materials and the formulation of the computational tools necessary for their analysis. For example, many new designs, such as microelectromechanical and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS), smart materials, and multi-functional materials, are inherently multiphysical and require rigorous constitutive modeling. Successful experimental demonstrations of negative electrical permittivity, magnetic permeability, effective elastic moduli, and mass density in the so-called metamaterials and extreme solids are other examples that emphasize the importance of classical applied mechanics fields, such as continuum mechanics, in recent years. Of particular importance have been multiscale and homogenization approaches, given the role of specific microstructural designs on the response of modern materials. There has also been a greater emphasis on non-deterministic approaches, given the higher sensitivity of the aforementioned materials to design deviations and the importance of stochastic distribution on small scale features in overall response (for example, in fracture mechanics and turbulence). Such advances have in turn necessitated the formulation of computational methods capable of the efficient and accurate rendering of these material models. Multiscale and high-order methods, rigorous analysis of numerical errors and efficiency, homogenization schemes, and efficient approaches for the solution of stochastic partial differential equations are but a few of the relevant topics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
