Some continuum models for dislocation interactions in a simple crystal geometry are studied. The simplest models are mixed systems ofconservation laws which are shown to exhibit singularities and instabilities. These are then regularized, leading to parabolic free-boundary problems. In both cases, solutions describing the formation of structures such as dislocation pile-ups are discussed.
