Space-time integral currents of bounded variation

  title={Space-time integral currents of bounded variation},
  author={Filip Rindler},
Motivated by a recent model for elasto-plastic evolutions that are driven by the flow of dislocations [12], this work develops a theory of space-time integral currents with bounded variation in time. Based on this, we further introduce the notion of Lipschitz deformation distance between integral currents, which arises physically as a (simplified) dissipation distance. Several results are obtained: A Helly-type compactness theorem, a deformation theorem, an isoperimetric inequality, and the… Expand

Elasto-plastic evolution of single crystals driven by dislocation flow
This work introduces a model for large-strain, geometrically nonlinear elasto-plastic dynamics in single crystals. The key feature of our model is that the plastic dynamics are entirely driven by theExpand


Energetic solutions to rate-independent large-strain elasto-plastic evolutions driven by discrete dislocation flow
This work rigorously implements a recent model, introduced in [34], of large-strain elasto-plastic evolution in single crystals where the plastic flow is driven by the movement of discreteExpand

Strong approximation in h-mass of rectifiable currents under homological constraint
Abstract Let h : ℝ → ℝ + {h:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{R}_{+}} be a lower semicontinuous subbadditive and even function such that h ⁢ ( 0 ) = 0 {h(0)=0} and h ⁢ ( θ ) ≥ α ⁢ | θ |Expand
Variational Evolution of Dislocations in Single Crystals
This paper provides an existence result for the energetic evolution of a set of dislocation lines in a three-dimensional single crystal and discusses a novel dissipation structure for such currents, namely the flat distance, that will drive the evolution of the dislocation clusters. Expand
Liftings, Young Measures, and Lower Semicontinuity
AbstractThis work introduces liftings and their associated Young measures as new tools to study the asymptotic behaviour of sequences of pairs (uj, Duj)j for $${(u_j)_j\subset {\rmExpand

On the lower semicontinuous envelope of functionals defined on polyhedral chains
Abstract In this note we prove an explicit formula for the lower semicontinuous envelope of some functionals defined on real polyhedral chains. More precisely, denoting by H : R → [ 0 , ∞ ) an even,Expand
The Line-Tension Approximation as the Dilute Limit of Linear-Elastic Dislocations
We prove that the classical line-tension approximation for dislocations in crystals, that is, the approximation that neglects interactions at a distance between dislocation segments and accordsExpand
Modeling of dislocations and relaxation of functionals on 1-currents with discrete multiplicity
In the modeling of dislocations one is led naturally to energies concentrated on lines, where the integrand depends on the orientation and on the Burgers vector of the dislocation, which belongs to aExpand
