A continuum cartoon of lipid bilayers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


The focus of this workshop was the modeling, analysis and numerical simulation of biological membranes. The fundamental models which characterize equilibria are based on bending energies such as the Helfrich energy and suitable generalizations. Talks in the workshop focused on equilibrium shapes of membranes and vesicles, the corresponding relaxation dynamics and the coupling with outer or inner flows.
