Computational Analysis of Structured Media presents a systematical approach to analytical formulae for the effective properties of deterministic and random composites. Schwarz’s method and functional equations yield for use in symbolic-numeric computations relevant to the effective properties. The work is primarily concerned with constructive topics of boundary value problems, complex analysis, and their applications to composites. Symbolic-numerical computations are widely used to deduce new formulae interesting for applied mathematicians and engineers. The main line of presentation is the investigation of two-phase 2D composites with non-overlapping inclusions randomly embedded in matrices.

Key Features

  • Computational methodology for main classes of problems in structured media
  • Theory of Representative Volume Element
  • Combines exact results, Monte-Carlo simulations and Resummation techniques under one umbrella
  • Contains new analytical formulae obtained in the last ten years and it combines different asymptotic methods with the corresponding computer implementations


Applied mathematicians at graduate level and above and mathematically advanced engineers interested in macroscopic property analysis in deterministic and random composites for scientific or industrial ends.
