Séminaire interne lundi 9 mai 2016 à 11h30 David Pereira et Etienne Fodor

Unless otherwise stated, seminars and defences take place at 11:30 in room 454A of Condorcet building.


Etienne Fodor: Self-propelled particles as an active matter system

In the realm of active matter, the particles’ motion is driven by external energy sources. Self-propulsion alone, which occurs in many experimental realizations, leads to a rich phenomenology that cannot be accounted for by equilibrium physics arguments. A striking example is the possibility for repulsive particles to phase separate (attached picture). On a specific model of self-propelled particles, I will explore how far from equilibrium its dynamics operate. I will also show that some concepts inherited from equilibrium physics may nevertheless have their say.
