  • Abstract

We study numerical approximations of a recently proposed phase field model for the vesicle membrane deformations governed by the variation of the elastic bending energy. Both the spatial discretization for the equilibrium problem with given volume and surface area constraints and the time discretization of a dynamic problem via gradient flow are considered. Convergence results of the numerical approximations are proved.
