The main design of this paper is to adopt potential functions for solving plane defect problems originating from two-dimensional decagonal quasicrystals. First, we analyze the strict potential function theory for the plane problems of two-dimensional quasicrystals. To clarify effectiveness of the method, we give some examples and the results which can be precisely determined, including the elasticity and fracture theories of two-dimensional quasicrystals. These results maybe play a positive role in studying the fracture of two-dimensional quasicrystals in the future. View Full-Text
