Landau weak crystallization theory of main phase transition in membranes

Presented by: 
E Kats Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics
Date: 
Tuesday 28th May 2013 - 14:00 to 15:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
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.
