A simple model for phase transitions: from the discrete to the continuum problem

  • Roberto Paroni
G3 10 (Lecture hall)


In this talk we study a one dimensional model simulating the shear in a two dimensional body. We analyse the discrete system and we deduce the continuum limit of the lattice model as the lattice parameter goes to zero. Different energies are introduced and linked together.
