The macroscopic physical properties of materials, from foams and polymer melts to steel and ceramics, are to a large extent governed by their internal microstructure. Understanding this microstructure – in particular its geometric and topological features – is complicated. This proposal considers a particular test system, that of disordered cellular structures, with the aim of exploiting current methods in random and computational geometry and topology to gain further insight into these materials, and to explore the creative mathematical ideas that result.
