And forge thee a fetter?

Damask it round with gold.

Spatial heterogeneity in the elastic properties of soft random solids is examined via vulcanization theory.
Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
Vulcanization theory studies semi-microscopic models of random-solid-forming systems, and applies replica field theory to deal with their quenched disorder and thermal fluctuations.
Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
This event is often called the “gelation transition” or the “vulcanization transition” .
Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
The geometrical or architectural aspects of the gelation/vulcanization transition can be well captured by the theory of percolation .
Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
Prior to vulcanization, the system consists of a more or less viscous fluid of flexible macromolecules.
Random solids and random solidification: What can be learned by exploring systems obeying permanent random constraints?
Vulcanization amounts to the imposition of permanent covalent chemical bonds between randomly chosen atoms on the macromolecules.
Random solids and random solidification: What can be learned by exploring systems obeying permanent random constraints?
Both the chemical bonds defining the macromolecules and the bonds introduced by vulcanization will be regarded as permanent.
Random solids and random solidification: What can be learned by exploring systems obeying permanent random constraints?
This separation of timescales provides the window necessary for the applicability of equilibrium statistical mechanics to the unconstrained freedoms, sub ject to the vulcanization constraints which play the role of quenched random variables.
Random solids and random solidification: What can be learned by exploring systems obeying permanent random constraints?
In contrast, the permanence of the chemical bonds in vulcanized macromolecular systems, both intra- and inter-molecular, at least on the timescale of envisaged experiments, allows for true localization.
