Locomotion and transport of microorganisms in fluids is an essential aspect of life. Search for food, orientation toward light, spreading of off-spring, and the formation of colonies are only possible due to locomotion. Swimming at the microscale occurs at low Reynolds numbers, where fluid friction and viscosity dominates over inertia. Here, evolution… (More)

The dynamics of semiflexible polymers under the influence of shear flow is studied analytically. Power laws are derived for various conformational and dynamical quantities which are in agreement with experimental findings. In particular, the tumbling motion is analyzed and expressions are provided for the probability distributions of the orientation angles… (More)

A theoretical description of the dynamics of DNA molecules and actin filaments in solution as measured experimentally by fluorescence correlation spectroscopy is provided and compared to recent experimental results. Particular attention is paid to the contribution of the intramolecular dynamics to the fluorescence correlation function. Using a semiflexible… (More)

The mutual effects of the conformations of a star polymer in simple shear flow and the deformation of the solvent flow field are investigated by a hybrid mesoscale simulation technique. We characterize the flow field near the star polymer as a function of its functionality (arm number) f . A strong screening of the imposed flow is found inside the star… (More)

Linear and star polymers in solution are studied in the presence of shear flow. The solvent is described by a particle-based mesoscopic simulation technique, which accounts for hydrodynamic interactions. The scaling properties of the average gyration tensor, the orientation angle, and the rotation frequency are investigated for various arm lengths and arm… (More)

Results of molecular dynamics simulations for systems with two flexible, oppositely charged polymer chains are presented. The lengths N and interaction strength lambda of the chains are varied. We find that the chains remain separated for small values of lambda. For large interaction strengths, i.e., large Bjerrum lengths, we find glasslike structures and… (More)

The dynamical properties of a flexible dumbbell composed of active Brownian particles are analytically analyzed. The dumbbell is considered as a simplified description of a linear active polymer. The two beads are independently propelled in directions which change in a diffusive manner. The relaxation behavior of the internal degree of freedom is tightly… (More)

A theoretical description is provided for the nonequilibrium conformational and dynamical properties of a polymer in shear flow. Using a mean-field semiflexible chain model, which accounts for hydrodynamic interactions within the preaveraging approximation, analytical expressions are derived for the dependence of the deformation, orientation, and relaxation… (More)

The nonequilibrium hydrodynamic correlations of a multiparticle-collision-dynamics (MPC) fluid in shear flow are studied by analytical calculations and simulations. The Navier-Stokes equations for a MPC fluid are linearized about the shear flow and the hydrodynamic modes are evaluated as an expansion in the wave vector. The shear-rate dependence and… (More)
