Abstract: We discuss efficient macroscale modelling of microscale systems using patch dynamics. This pilot study effectively homogenises microscale varying diffusion in one dimension. The `equation free' approach requires that the microscale model be solved only on small spatial patches. Suitable boundary conditions ensure that these patches are well coupled. By centre manifold theory, an emergent closed model exists on the macroscale. Patch dynamics systematically approximates this macroscale model. The modelling is readily adaptable to higher dimensions and to reaction-diffusion equations.
