Irreversibility and Chaos in micro-swimmer active matter

The properties of active suspensions of micro-swimmers are investigated through direct numerical simulation, so that no approximation is made at the continuous level other than the numerical one. We consider both pusher and puller organisms, with a spherical or ellipsoidal shape. We obtain the average velocity and the characteristic scales for an homogeneous two-dimensional suspension and the effective viscosity under shear. We bring evidences for all the complex features displayed to be related to a spontaneous breaking of the time-reversal symmetry. We show that chaos is not a key ingredient, whereas a large enough number of interacting particles and a non-spherical shape are needed to break the symmetry and are therefore at the basis of the phenomenology.
