Constitutive Law for Earthquake Production Based on Rate-and-State Friction:...

Heimisson, E. R. (2019), Constitutive Law for Earthquake Production Based on Rate-and-State Friction: Theory and Application of Interacting Sources, J. Geophys. Res., 124, 1802-1821, doi:10.1029/2018JB016823.
Abstract: 

The constitutive relationship of Dieterich (1994, https://doi.org/10.1029/93JB02581) for earthquake production has been applied widely to earthquake triggering. The Dieterich theory achieves mathematical simplicity and thus lends itself to practical applications through a number of simplifying assumptions. Perhaps the most suspect and criticized assumption is that seismic sources do not interact. Here I provide an extension of the constitutive framework, using the modified formulation of Heimisson
