The idea of monotonicity is shown to be the central theme of the solution theories associated with problems of mathematical physics. A “grand unified” setting is surveyed covering a comprehensive class of such problems. We illustrate the applicability of this setting with a number of examples. A brief discussion of stability and homogenization issues within this framework is also included.
