This book provides both the theoretical foundation as well as the authors' latest contributions to micromechanics and its applications in nano-mechanics, nano-composites, dislocation and thin film theories, and configurational mechanics theory. It serves mainly as a graduate textbook for first year graduate students in material science, applied and computational mechanics, nano-technology and science, and mechanical engineering. Also serving as a research monograph, it compiles recent developments in dislocation dynamics, numerical simulations of material failure and homogenization theory.
