Dynamics of domain growth in self-assembled fluid vesicles

Abstract

The dynamics of domain growth in self-assembled fluid vesicles was discussed by using large-scale dissipative particle dynamics. The model allowed the very first numerical investigation of the effects of hydrodynamics and area-to-volume constraints. Regimes corresponding to coalescence of flat patches, budding and vesiculation and coalescence of caps were observed. It was found that between these regimes, the area-to-volume constraint has a strong influence on crossovers.
