This project aims to pioneer a mathematical toolbox of new asymptotic techniques for discrete systems driven by vanishingly small influences. The purpose of these techniques is to permit the asymptotic study of discrete problems in which significant effects originate due to subtle causes that are invisible to existing asymptotic methods. Discrete systems play a significant role in modern applied mathematics, and it is vital that mathematical tools be designed in order to explore their behaviour. The aim of this project is to open new pathways for resolving open scientific problems, providing benefits such as understanding the energy dissipation of particle chains and granular lattices contained in small-scale technological components.
