Abstract. Adhesion between membranes is studied using a phenomenological model, where the inter-
membrane distance is coupled to the concentration of sticker molecules on the membranes. The model
applies to both adhesion of two flexible membranes and to adhesion of one flexible membrane onto a second
membrane supported on a solid substrate. We mainly consider the case where the sticker molecules form
