We consider simply connected bodies or regions of finite extent in space or space-time and write conservation laws associated with the equations in Parts I-IV. We review earlier work where, for elliptic equations, the boundary value problem is reformulated as a problem in the abstract theory of composites and the associated effective operator is equated with the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map that governs the response of the body. The dielectric polarizability problem and acoustic and electromagnetic… Expand
A unifying perspective on linear continuum equations prevalent in physics. Part II: Canonical forms for time-harmonic equations
Following some past advances, we reformulate a large class of linear continuum science equations in the format of the extended abstract theory of composites so that we can apply this theory to betterExpand

A unifying perspective on linear continuum equations prevalent in physics. Part I: Canonical forms for static and quasistatic equations
Following some past advances, we reformulate a large class of linear continuum physical equations in the format of the extended abstract theory of composites so that we can apply this theory toExpand
On cloaking for elasticity and physical equations with a transformation invariant form
In this paper, we investigate how the form of the conventional elastodynamic equations changes under curvilinear transformations. The equations get mapped to a more general form in which the densityExpand
Variational principles for complex conductivity, viscoelasticity, and similar problems in media with complex moduli
Linear processes in media with dissipation arising in conductivity, optics, viscoelasticity, etc. are considered. Time‐periodic fields in such media are described by linear differential equations forExpand
Propagation and localization of elastic waves in highly anisotropic periodic composites via two-scale homogenization
Abstract Wave propagation in periodic elastic composites whose phases may have not only highly contrasting but possibly also (in particular) highly anisotropic stiffnesses and moderately contrastingExpand
Bounds on complex polarizabilities and a new perspective on scattering by a lossy inclusion
Here we obtain explicit formulae for bounds on the complex electrical polarizability at a given frequency of an inclusion with known volume that follow directly from the quasistatic bounds of BergmanExpand

In this paper, we suggest a new perspective, where Newton's second law of motion is replaced by a more general law which is a better approximation for describing the motion of seemingly rigidExpand
A unifying perspective on linear continuum equations prevalent in science. Part VI: rapidly converging series expansions for their solution
We obtain rapidly convergent series expansions of resolvents of operators taking the form ${\bf A}=\Gamma_1{\bf B}\Gamma_1$ where $\Gamma_1({\bf k})$ is a projection that acts locally in FourierExpand
The Theory of Composites
Einstein, have contributed to the theory of composite materials. Mathematically, it is the study of partial differential equations with rapid oscillations in their coefficients. Although extensivelyExpand
Anisotropic mass density by two-dimensional acoustic metamaterials
We show that specially designed two-dimensional arrangements of full elastic cylinders embedded in a nonviscous fluid or gas define (in the homogenization limit) a new class of acoustic metamaterialsExpand
A unifying perspective on linear continuum equations prevalent in physics. Part V: resolvents; bounds on their spectrum; and their Stieltjes integral representations when the operator is not selfadjoint
We consider resolvents of operators taking the form ${\bf A}=\Gamma_1{\bf B}\Gamma_1$ where $\Gamma_1({\bf k})$ is a projection that acts locally in Fourier space and ${\bf B}({\bf x})$ is anExpand
