Abstract: The nucleation and-or growth of cracks in elastic-brittle solids has beenrecently described in 14 in terms of a special class of measures and with avariational technique requiring the minimization of a certain energy overclasses of bodies. Here, the physical foundations of the theory and the basicideas leading to it are described and commented further on. A view on certainpossible developments and shifts toward different settings is also given. Thisarticle has expository character.
