The attractive and spacing interaction between pairs of filaments via cross-linkers, e.g. myosin oligomers connecting actin filaments, is modeled by global integral kernels for negative binding energies between two intersecting stiff and long rods in a (projected) two-dimensional situation, for simplicity. Whereas maxima of the global energy functional… (More)
