This volume is a collection of the main lectures over a broad spectrum of rheological models with singularities as the "Leitmotiv", with 30 papers on the most recent developments in the analysis and understanding of non-linear singularities. Singularity-dominated local fields are frequently encountered in various branches of continuum mechanics, such as elasticity, plasticity, Newtonian fluids and more complex rheological models. Examples are provided by near tip fields of cracks, notches and wedges; interfacial phenomena; flow around corners, wedges and cones; moving contact lines in multiphase systems; cusps in fluid interfaces and shocks and localizations. The volume should be of interest to researchers and engineers in virtually all branches of continuum mechanics.
