Title: Order and fluctuations in self-driven matter
Speaker: Sriram Ramaswamy (IISc Physics department)
Date: 19 February 2018
Time: 3 - 5 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department
I will present work done with students and colleagues on the collective behaviour of motile organisms, viewed as interacting particles with an autonomous velocity and noise. The talk will include a bit of stochastic processes, some statistical mechanics, and some hydrodynamics. I will discuss experiments, analytical theory and some computation.
