Abstract: It is well known that rate-independent systems involving nonconvex energy functionals in general do not allow for time-continuous solutions even if the given data are smooth. In the last years, several solution concepts were proposed that include discontinuities in the notion of solution, among them the class of global energetic solutions and the class of BV-solutions. In general, these solution concepts are not equivalent and numerical schemes are needed that reliably approximate that type of solutions one is interested in. In this paper we analyze the convergence of solutions of three time-discretization schemes, namely an approach based on local minimization, a relaxed version of it and an alternate minimization scheme. For all three cases we show that under suitable conditions on the discretization parameters discrete solutions converge to limit functions that belong to the class of BV-solutions. The proofs rely on a reparametrization argument. We illustrate the different schemes with a toy example.
