Many complex phenomena in nature exhibit multiple scales. The challenge is to understand how the effects on one scale influence those on another. This review discusses some aspects of a multiscale analysis of martensitic materials as a prominent example of materials that exhibit nuanced structures and surprising implications on various scales. The emphasis is on dynamic issues. Some speculations are offered on future research directions.
