Crack problems may be solved by first establishing the stress field in the crack's absence and distributing strain nuclei along the line of the crack in order to render its faces traction-free. The relationship between the different possible forms of nucleus and the kinds of singular integral equation to which they lead are explored. The merits of each are then highlighted.
