Statistical methods for calculating the effective static and dynamic characteristics of textured microheterogeneous materials such as polycrystals, composites and rocks are considered. Effective static characteristics based on the example of the elastic modules tensor are analyzed. Effective dynamic characteristics based on the example of the dielectric permeability tensor in calculating the scattering factor, phase and group velocities of the propagation of plane electromagnetic waves are presented.
