Meso-scale turbulence in living fluids
Turbulence is ubiquitous, from oceanic currents to small-scale biological and quantum systems. Self-sustained turbulent motion in microbial suspensions presents an intriguing example of collectiveExpand

Dynamical clustering and phase separation in suspensions of self-propelled colloidal particles.
We study experimentally and numerically a (quasi-)two-dimensional colloidal suspension of self-propelled spherical particles. The particles are carbon-coated Janus particles, which are propelled dueExpand

Melting, freezing and colloidal suspensions
Abstract Melting and freezing are very common phenomena in everyday life. This review focusses on the statistical mechanics of these ubiquitous phase transitions and highlights recent work on theExpand

Fundamental-measure free-energy density functional for hard spheres: Dimensional crossover and freezing
A geometrically based fundamental-measure free-energy density functional unified the scaled-particle and Percus-Yevick theories for the hard-sphere fluid mixture. It has been successfully applied toExpand

Derivation of the phase-field-crystal model for colloidal solidification.
The phase-field-crystal model is by now widely used in order to predict crystal nucleation and growth. For colloidal solidification with completely overdamped individual particle motion, we show thatExpand

Star Polymers Viewed as Ultrasoft Colloidal Particles
Combining statistical-mechanical theories and neutron-scattering techniques, we show that the effective pair potential between star polymers is exponentially decaying for large distances and crossesExpand

Crystallization in a dense suspension of self-propelled particles.
Using Brownian dynamics computer simulations, we show that a two-dimensional suspension of self-propelled ("active") colloidal particles crystallizes at sufficiently high densities. Compared to theExpand
