This review paper outlines several formulations for lattice structures where dynamic lattice Green's functions play an important role in analysis of localization near defects as well as fracture in structured media. The mechanism of dissipation discussed here is natural for lattices modelling structured media. The properties of waves generated by cracks, and the exponentially localized vibration modes near small defects are linked to spectral properties of Bloch-Floquet waves in undamaged periodic media. The results outlined in this review paper are based on the work by (2002), (2007), (2007), (2008).
