This paper shows that the double-layer interaction between two red blood cells depends largely on their shape and elasticity. Various shapes are examined, including the realistic shape of a biconcave discocyte with an elastic membrane. It is found that changes in the shape and the elasticity of the erythrocyte may result to orders of magnitude differences in the forces and energies of pair interaction.
