Transient fluctuation-induced forces in driven electrolytes after an electric field quench

Understanding how electrolyte solutions behave out of thermal equilibrium is a long-standing endeavor in many areas of chemistry and biology. Although mean-field theories are widely used to model the

The World of Long-Range Interactions: A Bird's Eye View

In recent years, studies of long-range interacting (LRI) systems have taken center stage in the arena of statistical mechanics and dynamical system studies, due to new theoretical developments

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.

The Casimir effect: From quantum to critical fluctuations

The Casimir effect in quantum electrodynamics (QED) is perhaps the best-known example of fluctuation-induced long-ranged force acting on objects (conducting plates) immersed in a fluctuating medium

Statistical mechanics of driven diffusive systems

The `Friction' of Vacuum, and other Fluctuation-Induced Forces

The static Casimir effect describes an attractive force between two conducting plates, due to quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic (EM) field in the intervening space. Thermal fluctuations of

This model is formulated using Langevin dynamics, which allows an analytic study using methods from statistical and many-body physics, and incorporates the effects of short-range interactions such as cell-cell adhesion.

Long-Range Fluctuation-Induced Forces in Driven Electrolytes.

This work highlights the importance of nonequilibrium correlations in electrolytes and shows how they can be used to tune interactions between uncharged biological or synthetic structures at large separations.

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.
