Abstract
The fundamental models for lipid bilayers are curvature based and neglect the internal structure of the lipid layers. In this talk, we explore models with an additional order parameter which describes the orientation of the lipid molecules in the membrane and compare their predictions based on numerical simulations. This is joint work with Soeren Bartels (Bonn) and Ricardo Nochetto (College Park).
