Target search by active agents in rugged energy landscapes has remained a challenge because standard enhanced sampling methods do not apply to irreversible dynamics. We overcome this nonequilibrium rare-event problem by developing an algorithm generalizing transition-path sampling to active Brownian dynamics. This method is exemplified and benchmarked for a paradigmatic two-dimensional potential with a high barrier. We find that even in such a simple landscape the structure and kinetics of the…

Efficiency of navigation strategies for active particles in rugged landscapes

Optimal navigation in complex environments is a problem with multiple applications ranging from designing efficient search strategies to engineering microscopic cargo delivery. When motion happens in

Analytic Solution of an Active Brownian Particle in a Harmonic Well.

We provide an analytical solution for the time-dependent Fokker-Planck equation for a two-dimensional active Brownian particle trapped in an isotropic harmonic potential. Using the passive Brownian

Data is reported here to show that a purified particulate preparation from heart muscle which contains all the components of the cytochrome electron transmitter system also contains transhydrogenase, and no reaction whatsoever occurs with TPNH, whether added as such or generated by the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase system.
