Hydrodynamics of bio-membranes

After recalling the Stokes flow equations of ordinary viscous fluids, I will describe the original approach of Brochard and Lennon for the hydrodynamics of bio-membranes and red blood cells. Then I will discuss the more complete and rigorous theory of Seifert and Langer together with two applications : the chemical extraction of tubules in the experiment of Angelova et al. and the dynamics of the interaction between proteins. Finally I will present our generalization to bio-membrane with diffusing spanning proteins (in collaboration with Andrew Callan-Jones and Marc Durand (MSC)).
