# Foundations of the Theory of Structured Deformations

Chapter

## Abstract

To introduce the theory of structured deformations, a good starting point is perhaps to illustrate a situation in which such objects arise naturally, although unexpectedly, from a problem in fracture mechanics.^{1}

## Keywords

Structure Deformation Finite Union Limit Element Dimensional Hausdorff Measure Approximate Limit
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
