2017 Contest Logo

The logo design was developed by Blaise Bourdin of the LSU Mathematics Department. The design was based on research found in the articles "Morphological analysis of the crack pattern of a drying film bounded to an elastic substrate and subject to a uniform inelastic strain", by León-Baldelli, A., Babadjian, J.-F., Bourdin, B., Henao, D., and Maurini, C. (2014) and "A variational model for fracture and delamination of thin films" J. Mech. Phys. Solids, 70:15 - 32. Graduate student Richard Frnka modified the logo for the t-shirt design. Many thanks to both of you.
