Biological & Soft Matter Seminar

Abstract:

Active matter is a term that has come to describe diverse systems from flocking animals to the cytoskeleton of a cell. In this talk I will give an overview of the theoretical paradigm that unifies these diverse systems and discuss some results from minimal models for self propelled particles and suspension of cytoskeletal filaments.
