Abstract. We propose an upscaling scheme for the passage from atomistic to continuum
mechanical models of crystalline solids. It is based on a Taylor expansion of the deforma-
tion function up to a given order and describes the material properties to a higher extent
than commonly used continuum mechanical models. In particular, the discreteness e ects
of the underlying atomistic model are captured. The qualitative properties of the technique
are numerically analyzed for the model problem of a one-dimensional atomic chain. The
approach is then applied to the real three-dimensional physical example of a silicon crys-
