Abstract

We consider charged (and possibly conducting) membranes of arbitrary shapes immersed in an ionic solution. The electrostatic contribution to their free energy is exactly expressed as a convergent multiple scattering expansion. This allows the evaluation of the universal spontaneous, scalar and Gaussian curvature contributions to the membrane free energy. Topological effects are thus included. © 1990.
