: Phase-field approximations of Griffith energies and the non-interpenetration of fractures
We discuss numerical approaches for the computation of cracks in a brittle material, and of their evolution. We address the issue of interpenetration of the crack, and the numerical analysis of methods which have been proposed to prevent it.
