Abstract

We discuss a metastability problem arising in martensitic phase transformations, for which it can be proved that hysteresis occurs as a consequence of the geometric incompatibility between the parent and nucleating phases. This result does not follow from the existing general theory of local minimisers in the calculus of variations.
