Some Universal Features of Soft Random Solids
Goldbart, Paul M.
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this talk is to look at soft random solids through the lens of condensed matter theory, and to explore how their core features -- most notably their random structure and elasticity –- emerge via the collective behavior of their constituents. Along the way, we shall see that, provided certain twists are added, a familiar kind of field theory reveals some universality and even some simplicity in these archetypes of complexity.
