Foams and Emulsions
We consider mathematical models of bubbles, foams and froths, as collections of surfaces which minimize area under volume constraints. The resulting surfaces have constant mean curvature and an invariant notion of equilibrium forces. The possible singularities are described by Plateau's rules; this means that combinatorially a foam is dual to some triangulation of space. We examine certain restrictions on the combinatorics of triangulations and some useful ways to construct triangulations.doi:10.1007/978-94-015-9157-7_23 fatcat:rrxr2ryyfzeq3amdqjeve7ifui
