Department of Earth and Space Science, Faculty of Science, Osaka University - Toyonaka 560-0043, Japan
Received: 6 March 2014
Accepted: 6 June 2014
The nucleation process of the one-dimensional Burridge-Knopoff model of earthquakes obeying the rate- and state-dependent friction law is studied both analytically and numerically. The properties of the nucleation dynamics, the nucleation lengths and the duration times are examined together with their continuum limits.
