Abstract

In this talk I will present some recent work on the analysis and formation of planar metapatterns (patterns-of-patterns) that involve changes between two regions of regular (for instance cellular) pattern via moving defects that could be due to inhomogeneities, pattern selecting boundaries or moving domains. These patterns occur in a wide range of applications with either weak, semi-strong or strong morphologies.

The talk will focus on two types of metapatterns (involving stripe and hexagon patterns) in the weak morphology setting. Finally, I will present my plans/ideas for a fellowship grant.
