Abstract

The theory of elasticity in two-dimensional systems is discussed and applied to several specific cases of interest. In particular the elastic behavior of solid Langmuir-Blodgett films is reviewed and the appropriate elastic moduli are derived in terms of the Lamé coefficients under several commonly encountered boundary conditions. These results are particularly useful in the interpretation of Langmuir-Blodgett film data.
