An action for nonlinear dislocation dynamics

Amit Acharya's picture

Amit Acharya

An action functional is developed for nonlinear dislocation dynamics. This serves as a first step
towards the application of effective field theory in physics to evaluate its potential in obtaining
a macroscopic description of dislocation dynamics describing the plasticity of crystalline solids.
Connections arise between the continuum mechanics and material science of defects in solids,
effective field theory techniques in physics, and fracton tensor gauge theories.
