Statistical Physics of Fracture, Friction and Earthquake

Statistical Physics of Fracture, Friction and Earthquake
by Hikaru Kawamura, et al.

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 52

Description:
We review the present status of our research and understanding regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, which provides a 'microscopic' basis of our understanding of an earthquake instability, and on the statistical physical modelling of earthquakes, which provides 'macroscopic' aspects of such phenomena.
