Multi-scale modeling and computation is an increasingly important area of research with profound impact on computational science and applied mathematics. Recently a number of techniques have been developed that link the micro-scale and the macro-scale together in the same simulation. We will discuss a computational framework that allows for the accuracy of a micro-scale technique but with a computational cost that is closer to that of a macro-scale method.
