Interaction between surface shape and intra-surface viscous flow on lipid membranes

Abstract : The theory of intra-surface viscous flow on lipid bilayers is developed by combining the equations for flow on a curved surface with those that describe the elastic resistance of the bilayer to flexure. The model is derived directly from balance laws and augments an alternative formulation based on a variational principle. Conditions holding along an edge of the membrane are emphasized and the coupling between flow and membrane shape is simulated numerically.
