A fundamental problem in the physics of amorphous materials is understanding the transition from reversible to irreversible plastic behavior and its connection to yield. Currently, continuum materialâ€¦ (More)

The physical processes governing the onset of yield, where a material changes its shape permanently under external deformation, are not yet understood for amorphous solids that are intrinsicallyâ€¦ (More)

The periodic segmentation of the vertebrate body axis into somites, and later vertebrae, relies on a genetic oscillator (the segmentation clock) driving the rhythmic activity of signaling pathways inâ€¦ (More)

A classical problem in elasticity theory involves an inhomogeneity embedded in a material of given stress and shear moduli. The inhomogeneity is a region of arbitrary shape whose stress and shearâ€¦ (More)
