“Bubbles and foams have always attracted the interest of artists, poets and philosophers (as well as small children). Physicists are similarly drawn to the subject, but with more precise aims – to understand the detailed structure of crowded bubbles and their competing growth, as well as their mechanical properties. Here we will concentrate mainly on structure, recalling the contributions of Plateau and Kelvin in the 19th century and their echoes down to the present time.”
