The Inextricably Entangled Skein
In an earlier article (Weaire, 1985), one of the present authors reviewed some of the ideas and methods which have been aimed at the understanding of the random structure of amorphous solids and analogous two- dimensional structures, such as that of the 2d soap froth. The enigmatic title “The constraint of discord” was taken from a nineteenth century reference.
