Minisymposium Title: Defects and Patterns in Thin Elastic Structures

Minisymposium Description: The formation of defects and patterns in thin sheets is familiar; examples include the wrinkling of a sheet wrapping a piece of fruit, and the cracking or blistering of a layer of paint. The variety of patterns is great, and we are just beginning to understand and harness them. This is an area where physics, geometry, and the calculus of variations interact intensely, each providing both challenges and tools. The minisymposium embraces the area's interdisciplinary character, combining mathematics with mechanics, experiment with theory, and analysis with computing.
