Abstract

Abstract The transposition of plastic deformation from crystals to quasicrystals raises different types of questions: at the microscopic scale where defect descriptions must be adapted, at the macroscopic scale where unusual stress–strain curves and a sharp intrinsic brittle-to-ductile transition are observed. Some problems ripe for development are outlined.
