The purpose of Multi-scale modeling and simulation (MMS)
The goal is to develop a simulation of phenomena in complex systems, such as electrochemistry in batteries, nuclear fusion in a reactor, and CO2 sequestration. The scope of MMS extends to both the exact sciences and the social sciences, engineering and industry, and it requires a multidisciplinary approach.
An integrated systems approach is incredibly relevant at a time when challenging sustainability issues are becoming increasingly important, particularly in the areas of water, food and energy. An integrated systems approach includes all processes across the life cycle and even beyond, including recycling.
Because almost all technologies that can contribute to a sustainable future are almost always multiscale in nature, MMS will play a crucial role in this transition. And thus an important area of focus within Computational Sciences.
