Connecting Atomistic and Continuous Models of Elastodynamics

We prove the long-time existence of solutions for the equations of atomistic elastodynamics on a bounded domain with time-dependent boundary values as well as their convergence to a solution of continuum nonlinear elastodynamics as the interatomic distances tend to zero. Here, the continuum energy density is given by the Cauchy–Born rule. The models considered allow for general finite range interactions. To control the stability of large deformations we also prove a new atomistic Gårding inequality.
