Abstract:

In this paper we prove a $\mathcal C^{1,\alpha}$ regularity result for minimizers of the planar Griffith functional arising from a variational model of brittle fracture. We prove that any isolated connected component of the crack, the singular set of a minimizer, is locally a $\mathcal C^{1,\alpha}$ curve outside a set of zero Hausdorff measure.
