Seminar The complex life of a microswimmer
Marco Mazza


Active particles convert energy from chemical, biochemical, or other processes into motion. Their collective motion has attracted enormous interest on account of the technological applications of artificial and biological particles. By combining theoretical arguments, molecular dynamics simulations, and experiments we address the complex life of microswimmers in the presence of confining surfaces and hydrodynamic flow. Specifically, we will discuss (i) the sedimentation process, (ii) motion in the presence of curved interfaces, and (iii) effects of flows on the clustering of microswimmers. We will conclude by discussing the role of hydrodynamics on swimmers motion.
