Abstract: The understanding and modeling of failure processes in solids is a central task in materials sciences. Mathematical models typically result in highly nonlinear, coupled systems of partial differential equations, where additional nonsmooth constraints, as for instance the unidirectionality of evolution processes or the impenetrability of the material, have to be taken into account.

This minisymposium intends to discuss recent advances in the mathematical treatment of failure phenomena, and brings together scientists from the fields of modeling, analysis, and numerics. Analytical methods and numerical strategies both for (quasi-)static and rate-dependent, non-smooth failure models will be presented.
