As illustrated recently by the Materials Genome Initiative, the discovery of new materials with tailored functionalities is essential to economic development and human well-being (Warren, 2012). In fact, 10 of the 14 societal grand challenges identified by the National Academy of Engineering are expected to require the development of novel materials with improved properties (Sciences, 2001). To this end, the discovery of new materials or the optimization of existing ones requires a deep understanding of how the composition and structure of materials control their macroscale properties.
