Enhanced dynamics of active Brownian particles in periodic obstacle arrays and corrugated channels

The periodic arrangement of the obstacles enhances the persistent motion of the ABP in comparison to its motion in the free space and induces directionality in ABP motion at late time.

Effect of polydispersity on the dynamics of active Brownian particles.

The dynamics and the phases of self-propelled disk-shaped particles of different sizes with soft repulsive potential in two dimensions are numerically studied to help understand the behavior of cells of various sizes in a tissue, artificial self-driven granular particles, or living organisms of different size in a dense environment.



Fluctuations and pattern formation in self-propelled particles.

The ordered moving or flocking state of the system is unstable to spatial fluctuations beyond a threshold set by the self-propulsion velocity of the individual units, and the system exhibits large fluctuations in both density and orientational order.

Spontaneously ordered motion of self-propelled particles

We study a biologically inspired, inherently non-equilibrium model consisting of self-propelled particles. In the model, particles move on a plane with a velocity of constant magnitude; they locally

Collective transport in locally asymmetric periodic structures.

An overview of the cooperative effects in fluctuation driven transport arising from the interaction of a large number of particles in a model with finite-sized, overdamped Brownian particles interacting via hard-core repulsion is given.

Diffusion, subdiffusion, and trapping of active particles in heterogeneous media.

It is found that at low values of γ, particle motion is diffusive and characterized by a diffusion coefficient that displays a minimum at an intermediate obstacle density ρ(o), and that in high obstacle density regions and for large γ values, spontaneous trapping of active particles occurs.

Shearing self-propelled suspensions: arrest of coarsening and suppression of giant density fluctuations.

In the presence of shear there is no order-disorder transition, and that coarsening of the domains is arrested, and shear also suppresses the so-called giant density fluctuations that are observed in the quiescent limit.

Polar pattern formation: hydrodynamic coupling of driven filaments

It is shown that long ranged hydrodynamic interactions play a crucial role in the pattern forming mechanisms in the high density motility assay, a precisely controllable minimal model system consisting of highly concentrated filaments that are driven on the nanoscale.

Instabilities of convection rolls in a fluid of moderate Prandtl number

The instabilities of two-dimensional convection rolls in a horizontal fluid layer heated from below are investigated in the case when the Prandtl number is seven or lower. Two new mechanisms of

Collective Motion

It is demonstrated both numerically and analytically that even in certain one dimensional self-propelled particle systems an ordered phase exists for finite noise levels.

Collective effects in settling of spheroids under steady-state sedimentation.

An orientational transition of the spheroids is found, characterized by enhanced density fluctuations around the transition, around the average settling velocity, which may even exceed the terminal velocity of a single spheroid, in accordance with experiments.
