Recently, rod theory has been applied to the mathematical model-ing of bacterial fibers and biopolymers (e.g. DNA), to study their mechanical properties and shapes (e.g. supercoiling). In static rod theory, an elastic rod in equilibrium is the critical point of an elastic energy. This induces a natural question of how to find elasticae. In this paper, we(More)
