Steady-state currents in active matter: origin and implications
It is well known that under rather generic circumstances active systems can generate currents due to, say, an external potential. In the talk, I will discuss several implications of this fact on the physics of different systems. Specifically, I will focus on interactions between objects immersed in an active fluid, the effects of disorder on active particles, and escape problems.
This is a weekly series of informal talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
