Abstract
The aim of this talk is to look at soft random solids through the lens of condensed matter theory, and to explore how their core features -- most notably their random structure and elasticity –- emerge via the collective behavior of their constituents. Along the way, we shall see that, provided certain twists are added, a familiar kind of field theory reveals some universality and even some simplicity in these archetypes of complexity.
