Abstract

Long-range attractive forces between lipid bilayers are not well described by the Lifshitz theory of Van der Waals forces between macroscopic media. It is shown that when correlations between polar headgroups are taken into account, the predicted forces take a qualitatively different form consistent with the measured data.
