The goal of this theme is to create unified analytical, numerical and experimental approaches to the novel design of Metamaterials. The physical fields within Metamaterial structures are described by partial differential equations of elliptic, parabolic or hyperbolic types, and coefficients within the equations rapidly oscillate, due to the multiscale nature of Metamaterials.

This theme is split into the following sub topics:

1: Invisibility cloaks as a general concept and extensions such as active cloaking and thermal cloaking

2: Vibration control using multiscale resonators

3: Multiphysics coupling and control

4: Localisation and resonances in Metamaterials and related areas such as plasmonics
