Certain bacteria, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Salmonella typhimurium (S. typhimurium), use multiple flagella often concentrated at one end of their bodies to induce locomotion. Each flagellum is formed in a left-handed helix and has a motor at the base that rotates the flagellum in a corkscrew motion. We present a computational model of the(More)
A straightforward method is presented for computing three-dimensional Stokes flow, due to forces on a surface, with high accuracy at points near the surface. The flow quantities are written as boundary integrals using the free-space Green's function. To evaluate the integrals near the boundary, the singular kernels are regu-larized and a simple quadrature(More)
An efficient, non-stiff boundary integral method for the initial value problem for interfacial Darcy flow (which is a model of porous media flow) in three space dimensions is presented. We consider a 'doubly-periodic' interface separating two fluids, with surface tension present at the boundary. Surface tension introduces high order (i.e., high derivative)(More)
