A review on elasto-dynamics of quasicrystals (QCs) and their applications based on mathematical elasticity is given. In this study, recent studies on elasto-dynamics of QCs are reviewed, in which the focus of the problem lies in the role of phason variables and the coupling effect between phonons and phasons in the dynamic deformation process. On summarizing and describing the development of the elastic dynamics of QCs, this review mainly presents theelasto-dynamics of QCs and their application in a variety of research areas, ranging from problems with different QCs, including one-, two-, and three-dimensional QCs to various coupling problems. The plane elasticity and anti-plane elasticity of quasicrystals are included in this review. View Full-Text
