This volume contains eight state of the art contributions on mathematical aspects and applications of fast boundary element methods in engineering and industry. This covers the analysis and numerics of boundary integral equations by using differential forms, preconditioning of hp boundary element methods, the application of fast boundary element methods for solving challenging problems in magnetostatics, the simulation of micro electro mechanical systems, and for contact problems in solid mechanics. Other contributions are on recent results on boundary element methods for the solution of transient problems.

This book is addressed to researchers, graduate students and practitioners working on and using boundary element methods. All contributions also show the great achievements of interdisciplinary research between mathematicians and engineers, with direct applications in engineering and industry.

Recently, several applications, primarily driven
by microtechnology, have emerged where the use of materials with
tailored electromagnetic (dielectric) properties are necessary for a successful overall design. The ``tailored'' aggregate properties are
achieved by combining an easily moldable base matrix with particles
having dielectric properties that are chosen to deliver (desired) effective properties.
In many cases, the analysis of such materials requires the simulation of the macroscopic and microscopic electromagnetic response, as well as its resulting coupled thermal response, which can be important to determine possible failures in ``hot spots.'' This necessitates
a stress analysis. Furthermore, because, oftentimes, such processes initiate degratory chemical processes, it can be necessary to also include models for these processes as well.
A central objective of this work is to provide basic models and numerical solution strategies to analyze the coupled response of
such materials by direct simulation using standard laptop/desktop equipment. Accordingly, this monograph covers:

(1) The foundations of Maxwell's equations,

(2) Basic homogenization theory,

(3) Coupled systems (electromagnetic, thermal, mechanical and chemical),

(4) Numerical methods and

(5) An introduction to select biological problems.

The text can be viewed as a research monograph suitable for use in an upper-division undergraduate or first year graduate course geared towards students in the applied sciences, mechanics and mathematics that have an interest in the analysis of particulate materials.

This book was written to serve as the standard textbook of elastoplasticity for students, engineers and researchers in the field of applied mechanics. The present second edition is improved thoroughly from the first edition by selecting the standard theories from various formulations and models, which are required to study the essentials of elastoplasticity steadily and effectively and will remain universally in the history of elastoplasticity. It opens with an explanation of vector-tensor analysis and continuum mechanics as a foundation to study elastoplasticity theory, extending over various strain and stress tensors and their rates. Subsequently, constitutive equations of elastoplastic and viscoplastic deformations for monotonic, cyclic and non-proportional loading behavior in a general rate and their applications to metals and soils are described in detail, and constitutive equations of friction behavior between solids and its application to the prediction of stick-slip phenomena are delineated. In addition, the return-mapping algorithm, the consistent tangent operators and the objective time-integration algorithm of rate tensor are explained in order to enforce the FEM analyses. All the derivation processes and formulations of equations are described in detail without an abbreviation throughout the book.

The distinguishable features and importance of this book is the comprehensive description of fundamental concepts and formulations including the objectivity of

tensor and constitutive equations, the objective time-derivative of tensor functions, the associated flow rule, the loading criterion, the continuity and smoothness conditions and their substantial physical interpretations in addition to the wide classes of reversible/irreversible constitutive equations of solids and friction behavior between solids.
