Englert, F. and Peeters, K. and Taormina, A. (2008) 'Twenty-four near-instabilities of Caspar-Klug viruses.', Physical review E., 78 (3). 031908.
Group theoretical arguments combined with normal mode analysis techniques are applied to a coarse-grained approximation of icosahedral viral capsids which incorporates areas of variable flexibility. This highlights a remarkable structure of the low-frequency spectrum in this approximation, namely, the existence of a plateau of 24 near zero modes with universal group theory content.
