Self organization in synthetic polymeric systems
Polymer systems exhibit all the dynamic instabilities we have studied: oscillations, propagating fronts, and pattern formation. Some of the instabilities, such as those in a CSTR have been studied with the goal of eliminating them from industrial processes. A new trend is developing to harness the instabilities to create new materials or to create old materials in new ways.
