Fluid-dynamical basis of the embryonic development of left-right asymmetry in vertebrates.
It is shown with an analysis of the fluid dynamics of the nodal flow in the developing embryo that the leftward flow that has been experimentally observed may be produced by the monocilia driving it being tilted toward the posterior.

We show that, even in the most favorable case, the motion of a small spherical tracer suspended in a fluid of the same density may differ from the corresponding motion of an ideal passive particle.…

Dynamics of Finite-Size Particles in Chaotic Fluid Flows
We review recent advances on the dynamics of finite–size particles advected by chaotic fluid flows, focusing on the phenomena caused by the inertia of finite–size particles which have no counterpart…
The dynamics of nacre self-assembly
This dynamics involves the physics of the formation of both solid and liquid crystals and of membranes and fluids to produce a nanostructured hierarchically constructed biological composite of polysaccharides, proteins and mineral, whose mechanical properties far surpass those of its component parts.
Frontiers of chaotic advection
This work reviews the present position of and surveys future perspectives in the physics of chaotic advection: the field that emerged three decades ago at the intersection of fluid mechanics and…

Flood-dynamical simulations using direct numerical techniques address three important and fundamental questions with respect to fluid flow within the mouse node and left–right development, and model the movement of the newly discovered nodal vesicular parcels across the node shows that the flow should indeed cause them to accumulate on the left side of the node, as required for symmetry breaking.

It is shown that consideration of the amorphous forms of calcium carbonate within the physical notion of polyamorphism leads to new insights when it comes to the mechanisms by which polymorphic structures can evolve in the first place.
