Thermalization of rate-independent processes by entropic regularization

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider the effective behaviour of a rate-independent process when it is placed in contact with a heat bath. The method used to ``thermalize'' the process is an interior-point entropic regularization of the Moreau--Yosida incremental formulation of the unperturbed process. It is shown that the heat bath destroys the rate independence in a controlled and deterministic way, and that the effective dynamics are those of a non-linear gradient descent in the original energetic potential with respect to a different and non-trivial effective dissipation potential.
