Yi Jiang, Turab Lookman and Avadh Saxena, "Phase Separation and Shape Deformation on a Two-Phase Membrane", Phys. Rev. E, vol. 61, pp. R57-R60, 2000


Within a coupled-field Ginzburg-Landau model we study analytically phase separation and accompanying shape deformation on a two-phase elastic membrane in simple geometries such as cylinders, spheres and tori. Using an exact periodic domain wall solution we solve for the shape and phase ordering field, and estimate the degree of deformation of the membrane. The results are pertinent to a preferential phase separation in regions of differing curvature on a variety of vesicles.
