Abstract: Methods and techniques coming from the Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations have proved effective in the study of the inelastic behaviour of solids, in particular of material-failure phenomena. They allow to develop a robust and rigorous mathematical approach, efficient both in answering theoretical questions and in providing tools for numerical simulations and applications. The main focus of this minisymposium is to explore recent developments in the matematical modeling of brittle and cohesive fracture, both in the static and dynamic regimes. Particular emphasis will be placed on its interplay with other inelastic phenomena.
