This work deals with the well-posedness of the linearized initial value problem in solid elastoplastodynamics. By well-posedness we understand existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of the solution with respect to initial and boundary data. The initial value problem is studied in its most general form using a technique from Kreiss . The cases of elastic and elastic-plastic materials with associated and non-associated plastic flow rules are considered. The analysis is carried under the assumption that the material response remains within the same constitutive cone everywhere (i.e.; exclude loading/unloading subregions). A complete answer to the well-posedness question is given without the requirement of major symmetry of the constitutive tensor. First it is shown that in 2-D the necessary and sufficient condition for well-posedness is the strong ellipticity condition. Up to now this condition had been known only to be a sufficient condition.
