Many natural systems display striped morphologies and many different models have been proposed to explain this phenomenon. I will discuss a universal explanation for why stripes occur at low temperatures in systems with isotropic interactions. Further I show that similar arguments can be used to explain the patterns that can occur as ground states for many particle systems interacting with pairwise central forces.
