Resum
Biological membranes are continuously brought out of equilibrium, as they shape organelles, package and transport cargo, or respond to external actions. Even the dynamics of plain lipid membranes in experimental model systems are very complex due to the tight interplay between the bilayer architecture, the shape dynamics, and the rearrangement of the lipid molecules.We formulate and numerically implement a continuum model of the shape dynamics and lipid hydrodynamics, which describes the bilayer...
