Summary: In a number of applications, subgrid scales cannot be neglected. Sometimes, they are just a spurious by-product of a discretized scheme that lacks the necessary stability properties. In other cases, they are related to physical phenomena that actually take place on a very small scale but still have an important effect on the solution. We discuss here an attempt to recover information on the subgrid scales, by trying to simulate their effects on the computable ones.
