Active fluids, which are driven at the microscale by non-conservative forces, are known to exhibit novel transport phenomena due to the breaking of time reversal symmetry. Recently, Epstein and Mandadapu [arXiv:1907.10041 (2019)] obtained Green-Kubo relations for the full set of viscous coefficients governing isotropic chiral active fluids, including the so-called odd viscosity, invoking Onsager's regression hypothesis for the decay of fluctuations in active non-equilibrium steady states.

Nonequilibrium Green-Kubo relations for hydrodynamic transport from an equilibrium-like fluctuation-response equality

Near equilibrium, Green-Kubo relations provide microscopic expressions for macroscopic transport coefficients in terms of equilibrium correlation functions. At their core, they are based on the

Nonreciprocal response of a two-dimensional fluid with odd viscosity.

The odd viscosity-dependent mobility tensor is obtained, which is responsible for the nonreciprocal hydrodynamic response to a point force in a two-dimensional active chiral compressible fluid with odd viscolysis.

We collect recent results on deriving useful response relations also for non-equilibrium systems. The approach is based on dynamical ensembles, determined by an action on trajectory space.

Odd Diffusivity of Chiral Random Motion.

It is shown how odd diffusivity emerges in a chiral random walk model, and the applicability of the Green-Kubo relations is demonstrated through molecular dynamics simulations of a passive tracer particle diffusing in aChiral active bath.

Topologically Protected Transport of Cargo in a Chiral Active Fluid Aided by Odd-Viscosity-Enhanced Depletion Interactions.

It is shown that the topological edge flow supported by the chiral active fluid composed of spinners can even robustly transport an immersed intruder with the aid of the spinner-mediated depletion interaction between the intruder and boundary.

Diffusive regimes in a two-dimensional chiral fluid

Diffusion is a fundamental aspect of transport processes in biological systems, and thus, in the development of life itself. And yet, the diffusive dynamics of active fluids with directed rotation,

Odd mobility of a passive tracer in a chiral active fluid

Chiral active fluids break both time-reversal and parity symmetry, leading to exotic transport phenomena unobservable in ordinary passive fluids. We develop a generalized Green-Kubo relation for the



Odd viscosity in chiral active fluids

A hydrodynamic theory of chiral active fluids is developed and odd viscosity is connected, which was previously considered an abstract concept.

We derive from first principles the Kubo formulas for the stress-stress response function at zero wavevector that can be used to define the full complex frequency-dependent viscosity tensor, both

In this work, we present observable consequences of parity-violating odd viscosity term in incompressible 2+1D hydrodynamics. For boundary conditions depending on the velocity field (flow) alone we

Statistical mechanics of transport processes in active fluids: Equations of hydrodynamics.

The equations of hydrodynamics including mass, linear momentum, angular momentum, and energy are derived by coarse-graining the microscopic equations of motion for systems consisting of rotary dumbbells driven by internal torques to obtain the balances of total and internal energy of the active fluid.

Topological Waves in Fluids with Odd Viscosity.

This work shows how this odd viscosity has a dramatic effect on topological sound waves in fluids, including the number and spatial profile of topological edge modes.

Poiseuille flow to measure the viscosity of particle model fluids.

A new method is described that has a better signal to noise ratio than existing methods and is based on using periodic boundary conditions to simulate counter-flowing Poiseuille flows without the use of explicit boundaries.

A mechanism for anomalous transport in chiral active liquids.

An Irving-Kirkwood-type stress tensor is constructed for chiral liquids and it is shown how anomalous transport properties can be expected naturally due to the presence of a transverse component in the orientation-averaged intermolecular forces and anomalous distortion modes of the pair correlation function between chiral active particles.
