Modeling and computation of two phase geometric biomembranes using surface finite elements

Article English OPEN
Elliott, Charles M.; Stinner, Björn;

Biomembranes consisting of multiple lipids may involve phase separation phenomena leading to coexisting domains of different lipid compositions. The modeling of such biomembranes involves an elastic or bending energy together with a line energy associated with the phase... View more
