ABSTRACT
The failure of brittle objects proceeds by the rapid motion of cracks. When cracks are studied at the atomic scale, detailed questions of how they move and why become central. Solving simple analytical models points the way to numerical simulations of brittle fracture that can be compared directly with laboratory experiments. Numerics and experiment do not yet agree, because the atomic force laws on which the computations rest are not yet known well enough.
