Lipid bilayers serve as model surfaces that are often used to understand the behavior of actual cell membranes. Cell adhesion (1, 2), membrane fusion (1), binding-unbinding transition (3), self-assembly, and related phenomena govern an astounding array of biological functions; for example, sperm-egg fusion is the basis of mammalian reproducion (1)....
