Abstract
A summary of the work done for over a decade on the shaping of conoid membrane structures with unequal biaxial stresses is presented in an order that reflects, in hindsight, the body of knowledge accumulated on the subject. Critical results from the previous work are presented with a new point of view that reflects this evolution of understanding of the subject.
