The role of one-phase states for a two-phase elastic medium

Research output

Abstract

We consider a two-phase elastic medium and show that one-phase states are local minimum points for the energy functional if the surface tension coefficient is positive and one-phase states are and global minimum points or saddle points of the energy functional if the surface tension coefficient vanishes.
