The previous chapter has been devoted to the presentation of the basic theory of elastoplasticity in a fairly classical manner. While this theory is adequate in its own right, it is highly advantageous from the point of view of carrying out a mathematical and numerical analysis of the ensuing initial–boundary value problem to recast the constitutive theory in a convex-analytic framework. That will be the aim of this chapter.
