·         Numerical Homogenization

o    Numerical Homogenization with the Energy Matching Principle: Coarse-graining of a Virtual Liver

o    Numerical Homogenization of the wave equation with localized bases.

o    Numerical Homogenization of the wave equation with harmonic coordinates.

o    Numerical Homogenization of parabolic equations with caloric coordinates (with a continuum of scales in space and a time).

o    If you had access to the ultimate computer which problem would you try to solve?  (or why a well posed UQ problem/question is important) (replace ``the answer to life'' by ``the answer to UQ'', ``deep thought'' by ``petascale'' or ``exascale computer'',  and 42 by 0.42).
