We propose a dynamical theory of low-temperature shear deformation in amorphous solids. Our analysis is based on molecular-dynamics simulations of a two-dimensional, two-component noncrystallineâ€¦ (More)

The shear-transformation-zone (STZ) theory of plastic deformation in glass-forming materials is reformulated in light of recent progress in understanding the roles played by the effective disorderâ€¦ (More)

We summarize recent evidence that models of earthquake faults with dynamically unstable friction laws but no externally imposed heterogeneities can exhibit slip complexity. Two models are describedâ€¦ (More)

This investigation extends earlier studies of a shear-transformation-zone (STZ) theory of plastic deformation in amorphous solids. The main purpose is to explore the possibility that theâ€¦ (More)

We use shear transformation zone (STZ) theory to develop a deformation map for amorphous solids as a function of the imposed shear rate and initial material preparation. The STZ formulationâ€¦ (More)

We present a shear-transformation-zone (STZ)-based analysis of numerical simulations by Haxton and Liu [Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 195701 (2007)]. The extensive Haxton and Liu (HL) data sharply test theâ€¦ (More)

We develop an athermal version of the shear-transformation-zone (STZ) theory of amorphous plasticity in materials where thermal activation of irreversible molecular rearrangements is negligible orâ€¦ (More)

There has emerged recently a new theoretical picture of the way in which patterns are formed in dendritic crystal growth and in the closely analogous phenomenon of viscous fingering in fluids. Someâ€¦ (More)

We model a sheared disordered solid using the theory of shear transformation zones (STZs). In this mean-field continuum model the density of zones is governed by an effective temperature thatâ€¦ (More)

We use the shear transformation zone (STZ) theory of dynamic plasticity to study the necking instability in a two-dimensional strip of amorphous solid. Our Eulerian description of large-scaleâ€¦ (More)
