**ABSTRACT:**A trapping mechanism for propelled colloidal particles based on an inhomogeneous drive is presented and studied by means of computer simulations. In experiments this method can be realized using photophoretic Janus particles driven by a light source, which shines through a shading mask and leads to an accumulation of the particles in the passive part. An equation for an accumulation parameter is derived using the effective inhomogeneous diffusion constant generated by the inhomogeneous drive. The impact of particle interaction on the trapping mechanism is studied, as well as the interplay between passivity-induced trapping and the emergent self-clustering of systems containing a high density of active particles. The combination of both effects makes the clusters more controllable for applications.Physical review.

**ABSTRACT:**Differential capacitance (DC) data have been widely used to characterize the structure of electrolyte solutions near charged interfaces and as experimental validation of models for electrolyte structure. Fixing a large class of models of electrolyte free energy that incorporate finite-volume effects, a reduction is identified which permits the identification of all free energies within that class that return identical DC data. The result is an interpretation of DC data through the equivalence classes of nonideality terms, and associated boundary layer structures, that cannot be differentiated by DC data. Specifically, for binary salts, DC data, even if measured over a range of ionic concentrations, are unable to distinguish among models which exhibit charge asymmetry, charge reversal, and even ion crowding. The reduction applies to capacitors which are much wider than the associated Debye length and to finite-volume terms that are algebraic in charge density. However, within these restrictions the free energy is shown to be uniquely identified if the DC data are supplemented with measurements of the excess chemical potential of the system in the bulk state.Physical review.

**ABSTRACT:**We exactly analyze the vibrational properties of a chain of harmonic oscillators in contact with local Langevin heat baths. Nonequilibrium steady-state fluctuations are found to be described by a set of mode-temperatures, independent of the strengths of both the harmonic interaction and the viscous damping. Energy is equally distributed between the conjugate variables of a given mode but differently among different modes, in a manner which depends exclusively on the bath temperatures and on the boundary conditions. We outline how bath-temperature profiles can be designed to enhance or reduce fluctuations at specific frequencies in the power spectrum of the chain length.Physical review.

##### Article: Nonlinear Ehrenfestâ€™s urn model

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**Ehrenfest's urn model is modified by introducing nonlinear terms in the associated transition probabilities. It is shown that these modifications lead, in the continuous limit, to a Fokker-Planck equation characterized by two competing diffusion terms, namely, the usual linear one and a nonlinear diffusion term typical of anomalous diffusion. By considering a generalized $H$ theorem, the associated entropy is calculated, resulting in a sum of Boltzmann-Gibbs and Tsallis entropic forms. It is shown that the stationary state of the associated Fokker-Planck equation satisfies precisely the same equation obtained by extremization of the entropy. Moreover, the effects of the nonlinear contributions on the entropy production phenomenon are also analyzed.Physical review.
