Title: Coupled Self-Organized Hydrodynamics and Stokes models for suspensions of active particles
Place: Å11167
Time: 12:15 -- 13:00
Abstract:
We derive macroscopic dynamics for collective motion in a fluid.The starting point is a coupled Vicsek-Stokes system. The Vicsek modeldescribes self-propelled agents interacting through alignment. It provides aphenomenological description of steric interactions between agents at highdensity. Stokes equations describe a low Reynolds number fluid.
