The buckling and wrinkling of thin films has recently seen a surge
of interest among physicists, biologists, mathematicians and engi-
neers. This has been triggered by the growing interest in developing
technologies at ever decreasing scales and the resulting necessity to
control the mechanics of tiny structures, as well as by the realization
