Discrete structures in continuum descriptions of defective crystals
Parry, Gareth P. (2016) Discrete structures in continuum descriptions of defective crystals. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical & Engineering Sciences, 374 . ISSN 1471-2962
I discuss various mathematical constructions that combine together to provide a natural setting for discrete and continuum geometric models of defective crystals. In particular I provide a quite general list of `plastic strain variables', which quantifies inelastic behaviour, and exhibit rigorous connections between discrete and continuous mathematical structures associated with crystalline materials that have a correspond-ingly general constitutive specification.
