*Weak solutions for rate-independent systems illustrated at an example for crack propagation.*

In the corresponding models it is assumed that the actual state of the material can be completely characterized by the displacement field and a collection of internal variables that characterize for instance the damage state or the plastic deformation. The model describing the evolution of these quantities with respect to external loadings consist of a (quasistatic) balance of forces resulting in a system of linear elliptic equations that is coupled with an evolutionary variational inequality describing the changes of the internal variables. This coupled system can be derived from an energy functional and a dissipation potential, which, due to rate-independence, is positively homogeneous of degree one.

Since in many applications the energy functional is not simultaneously convex with respect to the displacements and the internal variables, solutions of the evolution system might be discontinuous in time. Hence, weak formulations and suitable jump criteria are needed that lead to physically reasonable solutions.

In this lecture we discuss different possibilities to define weak solutions and illustrate the predictions with a model describing the propagation of a single crack in a brittle elastic material.

*Mathematics of Collective Behaviour - Complex Patterns and Minimal Models.*

This talk will provide an overview of the modelling from a mathematician's viewpoint and demonstrate that (besides pre-existing patterns in the environment) the main source of pattern formation is an interaction of two effects, namely long-range attraction and short-range repulsion. In macroscopic models based on partial differential equations, this typically means a combination of a (nonlinear) diffusion term with an integral operator.

In order to understand this interplay minimal mathematical models will be derived and analyzed, which contribute strongly to the understanding of basic mechanisms of pattern formation and phase transitions with respect to system parameters as found in real data and detailed microscopic simulations.
