Trends in Computational Nanomechanics-Transcending Length and Time Scales

td's picture

I am happy to announce the forthcoming volume titled Trends in Computational Nanomechanics - Transcending Length and Time Scales 
Springer Series: Challenges and Advances in Computational Chemistry and Physics, Vol. 9
Dumitrica, Traian (Ed.)
2010, XVIII, 620 p., Hardcover 
ISBN: 978-1-4020-9784-3 

The volume is an informative description of the progress in nanomechanics as of 2009. It captures the important insights generated via the separate application of microscopic (from ab initio to tight binding to empirical force field) and continuum modeling techniques, as well as recent developments in multiscale methodologies and the new results generated by utilizing these methods.
