Significance Describing the response of materials is central to physics, yet the complex response of frustrated media—featuring multistep pathways which can be encoded by sequences of switching material bits—is poorly understood. Here we introduce compression of corrugated elastic sheets to experimentally observe and manipulate these bits, their interactions, and their pathways. We apply spatial gradients at the boundaries as a general technique to control the pathways. Besides mechanical…

Cooperative effects driving the multi-periodic dynamics of cyclically sheared amorphous solids.
When subject to cyclic forcing, amorphous solids can reach periodic, repetitive states, where the system behaves plastically, but the particles return to their initial positions after one or more

Dynamically writing coupled memories using a reinforcement learning agent, meeting physical bounds
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how a reinforcement learning agent can exploit the dynamical response of a simple multi-bit mechanical system to re-store its memory to full capacity, using a model framework consisting of a chain of bi-stable springs which is manipulated on one end by the external action of the agent.
Non-orientable order and non-Abelian response in frustrated metamaterials
From atomic crystals to bird flocks, most forms of order are captured by the concept of spontaneous symmetry breaking [1–3]. This paradigm was challenged by the discovery of topological order, in

A reprogrammable mechanical metamaterial with stable memory.
TLDR
It is expected that the stable memory and on-demand reprogrammability of mechanical properties in this design paradigm will facilitate the development of advanced forms of mechanical metamaterials.

Memory from coupled instabilities in crumpled sheets
Crumpling an ordinary thin sheet transforms it into a structure with unusual mechanical behaviors, such as logarithmic relaxation, emission of crackling noise, and memory retention. A central
Multiperiodic orbits from interacting soft spots in cyclically sheared amorphous solids
TLDR
It is shown that multiperiodic behavior can arise among just three or more soft spots that interact with each other, but in all cases it requires frustrated interactions, illuminating this otherwise elusive type of interaction.
Multiple memory formation in glassy landscapes
TLDR
An interacting-rearrangement model for sheared solids shows multiple interaction-encoding memories and complex limit cycles, and shows that adding interactions between rearranging clusters overcomes deficiencies.
Profusion of transition pathways for interacting hysterons.
TLDR
It is shown that three interacting hysterons generate more than 15 000 transition graphs, with most violating return point memory and having features completely distinct from the Preisach model.

Topology of the energy landscape of sheared amorphous solids and the irreversibility transition.
TLDR
It is found that reversible plastic events are abundant and that a large portion of the plastic events encountered during the transient period are actually reversible in the sense that they can be part of a reversible deformation path.
