An active network is a prototype model in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. It can represent, for example, a system with particles that have a self-propulsion mechanism. Each node of the network specifies a possible location of a particle and its orientation. The orientation (which is formally like a spin degree of freedom) determines the self-propulsion direction. The bonds represent the possibility to make transitions: to hop between locations or to switch the orientation. In systems of… 
Negative mobility, sliding, and delocalization for stochastic networks.
This work considers prototype configurations for quasi-one-dimensional stochastic networks that exhibit negative mobility, meaning that current decreases or even reversed as the bias is increased, and investigates the implications of disorder.
Ramifications of disorder on active particles in one dimension.
It is found that in a system with many interacting particles, disorder in the potential leads to strong clustering, and it is shown that the mean cluster size scales with the system size, in contrast to nondisordered systems.


Topological localization in out-of-equilibrium dissipative systems
This paper reports that notions of topological protection can be applied to stationary configurations that are driven far from equilibrium by active, dissipative processes, and considers two physically disparate systems: stochastic networks governed by microscopic single-particle dynamics, and collections of driven interacting particles described by coarse-grained hydrodynamic theory.
Lattice models of nonequilibrium bacterial dynamics
This lattice model constitutes an efficient tool to simulate a class of interacting run-and-tumble models relevant to bacterial motion, so long as certain conditions are met.
Dynamics of molecular motors with finite processivity on heterogeneous tracks.
It is shown that the response of the system to disorder in the hopping-off rate depends on the value of the external force, and existence of localized states near the top of the band implies a stretched exponential contribution to the decay of the survival probability.
Non-Hermitian localization in biological networks.
P perturbation theory results are concluded that describe the limit of large directional bias, when all states are extended, in N-site banded one-dimensional non-Hermitian random matrices that arise naturally in sparse neural networks.
Active Brownian particles
Abstract We review theoretical models of individual motility as well as collective dynamics and pattern formation of active particles. We focus on simple models of active dynamics with a particular
Percolation, sliding, localization and relaxation in topologically closed circuits
It is shown that for a conservative stochastic process the implied spectral properties are dramatically different, and in particular the threshold for under-damped relaxation is determined, and “complexity saturation” as the bias is increased.
The Dynamics of a Disordered Linear Chain
By a disordered chain we mean a chain of one-dimensional harmonic oscillators, each coupled to its nearest neighbors by harmonic forces, the inertia of each oscillator and the strength of each
Hydrodynamics of soft active matter
This review summarizes theoretical progress in the field of active matter, placing it in the context of recent experiments, and highlights the experimental relevance of various semimicroscopic derivations of the continuum theory for describing bacterial swarms and suspensions, the cytoskeleton of living cells, and vibrated granular material.
