We perform a high-precision calculation of the critical exponents for the long-range elastic string driven through quenched disorder at the depinning transition, at zero temperature. Large-scale simulations avoid finite-size effects and improve accuracy. We explicitly demonstrate the equivalence of fixed-velocity and fixed-driving-force simulations. The roughness, growth, and velocity exponents are calculated independently, and the dynamic and correlation length exponents are derived. The…

The effect of disorder geometry on the critical force in disordered elastic systems
We address the effect of disorder geometry on the critical force in disordered elastic systems. We focus on the model system of a long-range elastic line driven in a random landscape. In the
Roughness and multiscaling of planar crack fronts
We consider numerically the roughness of a planar crack front within the long-range elastic string model, with a tunable disorder correlation length ξ. The problem is shown to have two important
Depinning Transition of a Domain Wall in Ferromagnetic Films
First principle numerical study of domain wall (DW) depinning in two-dimensional magnetic film, which is modeled by 2D random-field Ising system with the dipole-dipole interaction, finds that tuning the strength of the dipoles-d Dipole interaction switches DW dynamics between two different universality classes, corresponding to two distinct dynamic regimes.
Depinning and flow of a vortex line in a uniaxial random medium
We study numerically and analytically the dynamics of a single directed elastic string driven through a 3-dimensional disordered medium. In the quasistatic limit the string is super-rough in the
Universal Scaling of the Velocity Field in Crack Front Propagation.
It is shown that the correlation functions of the velocity field along the front allow us to extract the critical exponents of the transition and to identify the universality class of the system.
Evolution of the average avalanche shape with the universality class
Here it is shown how the average avalanche shape evolves with the universality class of the avalanche dynamics by employing a combination of scaling theory, extensive numerical simulations and data from crack propagation experiments.
Anisotropic avalanches and critical depinning of three-dimensional magnetic domain walls.
The total interface roughness is consistent with self-affine scaling with a roughness exponent ζ≈χ that is much larger than values found previously for the RFIM and related models that explicitly break orientational symmetry by requiring the interface to be single-valued.
Atomic-scale avalanche along a dislocation in a random alloy
The propagation of dislocations in random crystals is evidenced to be governed by atomic-scale avalanches whose the extension in space and the time intermittency characterizingly diverge at the
Local dynamics of a randomly pinned crack front: a numerical study
We investigate numerically the dynamics of crack propagation along a weak plane using a model consisting of fibers connecting a soft and a hard clamp. This bottom-up model has previously been shown
Field theory of disordered systems -- Avalanches of an elastic interface in a random medium
In this thesis I discuss analytical approaches to disordered systems using field theory. Disordered systems are characterized by a random energy landscape due to heterogeneities, which remains fixed
