Many of the pattern forming features of ferrofluids, lipid monolayers, type-I superconductors, and magnetic bubbles can be understood by treating them as dipolar ͑uniformly magnetized or polarized͒ domains. Here, we investigate the early stages of pattern formation in a system consisting of two quasi-two-dimensional dipolar domains. We calculate the linearized interaction energy for these domains and find that the lowest energy states are those for which each drop has an indentation directeddoi:10.1103/physreve.64.056230 pmid:11736077 fatcat:oy5qf3ovibfspbzdwwxelas57u
