Abstract: The Canham-Helfrich functional is the most widely used functional to study the equilibrium of biological membranes as a result of the competition between mean curvature and Gaussian curvature.
In this talk, we review some approaches to the minimisation problem for this functional and present novel results in the setting of generalised Gauss graphs.
This is joint work with Anna Kubin and Luca Lussardi.
