Séminaire 28.04.2009

par Benjamin Rotenberg - 9 avril 2009

Ignacio Pagonabarraga, de l’Université de Barcelone, donnera un séminaire intitulé Active microswimmers : From individual motion to collective structures

Le séminaire aura lieu le 28 avril 2009 à 11h dans la bibliothèque du 7ème.


Fluids containing organisms which can displace as a result of their internal metabolism or due to properly actuated fields exhibit properties which distinguish them from other types of complex fluids. In this talk I will focus on suspensions of model swimmers. I will describe the basic hydrodynamics characterizing their motion and how such flows can lead to dynamic interactions in suspensions of such swimmers. I will analyze the collective behavior which emerges from such coupling both for free suspensions as well as a reaction to applied driving fields.
