  • Spontaneous persistent motions driven by active processes play a central role in maintaining living cells far from equilibrium. In the majority of research studies, the steady state dynamics of an active system has been described in terms of an effective temperature. By contrast, we have examined a prototype model for diffusion in an activity-induced rugged energy landscape to describe the slow dynamics of a tagged particle in a dense active environment. The expression for the mean escape time… CONTINUE READING
