In this paper, we consider a Generalized Fast Marching Method (GFMM) as a numerical method to compute dislocation dynamics. The dynamics of a dislocation hyper-surface in R N (with N = 2 for physical applications) is given by its normal velocity which is a non-local function of the whole shape of the hyper-surface itself. For this dynamics, we show a convergence result of the GFMM as the mesh size goes to zero. We also provide some numerical simulations in dimension N = 2.
