# 1.1. Homogenization schemes

The purpose of a homogenization scheme is twofold:
1. Distribute the total deformation gradient $\bar{\tnsr F}$ among all the crystals present at one material point.
2. Homogenize the resulting stresses $\tnsr P$ of the individual crystals into the material point response $\bar{\tnsr P}$.

DAMASK currently supports two homogenization schemes, isostrain and the Relaxed Grain Cluster (RGC) scheme.
