Abstract. We propose a model describing liquid-solid phase coexistence in mixed lipid membranes by
including explicitly the occurrence of a rippled phase. For a single component membrane, we employ a
previous model in which the membrane thickness is used as an order parameter. As function of temperature,
this model properly accounts for the phase behavior of the three possible membrane phases: solid, liquid
