When the correlations reach this scale, they cannot extend further, and therefore the rough surface reaches a steady-state which is characterized by a constant width. Then, the surface is scale invariant and the saturation value w(L, ∞) is expected to have a power-law dependence on L: w(L, ∞) ∼ Lα . (35) The correlation time tc also scales with L as tc ∼ Lα/β ∼ Lz , (36) α Equation (34) indicates that, if one plots w/Lα versus t/Lα/β , then, due to the universality of g(u), all the results for various t and L should collapse onto a single universal curve [representing the scaling function g(u)].

Variational Principles 31 g(x, 0) = e∗ (x, 0) = 0. Then, if one defines the concave polar of g by g∗ (x, q) = inf {sq − g(x, s)}, (24) g(x, s) ≤ inf {sq − g∗ (x, q)}, (25) s≥0 it follows that q≥0 with the equality holding true if g is concave. Assuming then that the complementary energy density function w ∗ of the nonlinear heterogeneous material is such that g is concave, it follows from (25) that w∗ (x, D) = inf {w 0∗ (x, D) + v(x, 0 0 ≥0 )}, (26) where q has been identified with (2 0 )−1 and s with D 2 , such that w 0∗ (x, D) = [ 12 0 (x)]D 2 is the complementary-energy function of the linear, heterogeneous comparison material with arbitrary non-negative dielectric coefficient 0 (x), and v(x, 0 ) = g ∗ (x, 12 0 ).

Its linear size, is less than the length scale at which it can be considered homogeneous, then the classical equations that describe transport processes in the material must be fundamentally modified. 0 Introduction The main focus of Volume II is on nonlinear properties of heterogeneous materials. ) gradient is nonlinear. As a result, the macroscopic behavior of such materials must also be described by nonlinear transport equations. In particular, the effective transport properties of such materials are nonlinear in the sense of being functions of the external potential gradient.
