In this paper we describe an environment for reasoning about the reals which combines the rigour of a theorem prover with the power of a computer algebra system. 1 Introduction Computer theorem provers are a topic of research interest in their own right. However much of their popularity stems from their application in computeraided verification, i.e. proving that designs of electronic or computer systems, programs, protocols and cryptosystems satisfy certain properties. Such proofs, as compared with the proofs one finds in mathematics books, usually involve less sophisticated central ideas, but contain far more technical Supported by the Science and Engineering Research Council, UK. y Supported by SERC grant GR/G 33837 and a grant from DSTO Australia. details and therefore tend to be much more difficult for humans to write or check without making mistakes. Hence it is appealing to let computers help. Some fundamental mathematical theories, such as arithmetic, are usually requi...

QUASISTATIC EVOLUTION FOR CAMCLAY PLASTICITY: A WEAK FORMULATION VIA VISCOPLASTIC REGULARIZATION AND TIME RESCALING
"... Abstract. CamClay nonassociative plasticity exhibits both hardening and softening behaviour, depending on the loading. For many initial data the classical formulation of the quasistatic evolution problem has no smooth solution. We propose here a notion of generalized solution, based on a viscoplast ..."

Abstract. CamClay nonassociative plasticity exhibits both hardening and softening behaviour, depending on the loading. For many initial data the classical formulation of the quasistatic evolution problem has no smooth solution. We propose here a notion of generalized solution, based on a viscoplastic approximation. To study the limit of the viscoplastic evolutions we rescale time, in such a way that the plastic strain is uniformly Lipschitz with respect to the rescaled time. The limit of these rescaled solutions, as the viscosity parameter tends to zero, is characterized through an energydissipation balance, that can be written in a natural way using the rescaled time. As shown in [4] and [6], the proposed solution may be discontinuous with respect to the original time. Our formulation allows to compute the amount of viscous dissipation occurring instantaneously at each discontinuity time.
