In this talk I analyze a scalar wave equation in a time varying domain of the form "set minus a growing crack", when the crack develops along a given path. Under suitable regularity assumptions, I show existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence on the cracks of the weak solution of the wave equation under study. This is a joint work with Gianni Dal Maso.
