Landau weak crystallization theory of main phase transition in membranes

Kats, E (Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics)
Tuesday 28 May 2013, 14:00-15:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We demonstrate that experimental data concerning the main phase transition in membranes can be rationalized in the framework of a theoretical scheme constructed in the spirit of the so-called weak crystallization theory. The scheme enables to explain a combination of seemingly contradictory features of the main phase transition: its first order nature and a well pronounced pre-transitional critical behaviour of various physical quantities.
