In this paper we present some interesting variants on the mathematical phenomenon of cavitation in nonlinear elasticity. The paper is motivated by experimental work of Gent & Tompkins on pressurized elastomers, the fundamental mathematical work of Ball on cavitation and an example of degenerate cavitation due to Sivaloganathan.
