Specific theories and applications of cutting are being reported in a bewildering number of journals. This is across materials, engineering, food, agriculture, health sciences, ecology, palaeontology, archaeology and more but they can be unified under the umbrella of fracture mechanics. Our aim is examine and disseminate this unified theory in discussion with investigators from many disciplines to advance research in these fields.
