Active agents—like phoretic particles, bacteria, sperm, and cytoskeletal filaments in motility assays—show a large variety of motility-induced collective behaviors, such as aggregation, clustering, and phase separation. The behavior of dense suspensions of engineered phoretic particles and of bacteria during biofilm formation is determined by two q...

Active agents - like phoretic particles, bacteria, sperm, and cytoskeletal filaments in motility assays - show a large variety of motility-induced collective behaviors, such as aggregation, clustering and phase separation. The behavior of dense suspensions of phoretic particles and of bacteria during biofilm formation is determined by two principle...

Theories that are used to extract energy-landscape information from single-molecule pulling experiments in biophysics are all invariably based on Kramers' theory of thermally-activated escape rate from a potential well. As is well known, this theory recovers the Arrhenius dependence of the rate on the barrier energy, and crucially relies on the ass...

Collective behavior of self-propelled particles is observed on a microscale for swimmers such as sperm and bacteria as well as for protein filaments in motility assays. The properties of such systems depend both on their dimensionality and the interactions between their particles. We introduce a model for self-propelled rods in two dimensions that...
