Statistical properties of a tangentially driven active filament

20 Nov 2019 Peterson Matthew S. E. Hagan Michael F. Baskaran Aparna

Active polymers play a central role in many biological systems, from bacterial flagella to cellular cytoskeletons. Minimal models of semiflexible active filaments have been used to study a variety of interesting phenomena in active systems, such as defect dynamics in active nematics, clustering and laning in motility assays, and conformational properties of chromatin in eukaryotic cells...
