Lattice-Statics Model for Edge Dislocations in Crystals

Abstract

A lattice statics Green's function method is described for modeling an edge dislocation in a crystal lattice. The edge dislocation is created by intoducing a half plane of vacancies as in Volterra's condtruction. The defect space is decomposed into a part that has translation symmetry and a localized end space. The Dyson's equation for the defect Green's function is solved by using a defect space Fourier transform method for the translational part and matrix partitioning for the localized part. Preliminary results for a simple cubic model are present.
