1. The concept of dynamic materials (DM) as thermodynamically open formations in space-time. Cross-disciplinary implementations: properly material (mechanical or electromagnetic), biological (living tissue), environmental (traffic), etc.
2. Mathematical description: Minkowskian space-time. Tensor formulation of electrodynamics of moving bodies. Lorentz group, electrodynamic material tensor. Classification of DM into activated and kinetic.
3. Unusual effects: screening, light trapping, energy and power accumulation.
