    • Elastic Platonic Shells 

      Yong, Ee; Nelson, David R.; Mahadevan, Lakshminarayanan (American Physical Society, 2013)
      On microscopic scales, the crystallinity of flexible tethered or cross-linked membranes determines their mechanical response. We show that by controlling the type, number, and distribution of defects on a spherical elastic ...
    • Problems at the Nexus of Geometry and Soft Matter: Rings, Ribbons and Shells 

      Yong, Ee Hou (2012-08-17)
      There has been an increasing appreciation of the role in which elasticity plays in soft matter. The understanding of many shapes and conformations of complex systems during equilibrium or non-equilibrium processes, ranging ...
