Nordita workshop: Current and Future Themes in Soft and Biological Active Matter
Albano Building 3
Stockholm, 25 July-19 August 2022

In this seminar, I will present some examples of how the behaviour of active particles can be influenced by their environment. In particular, I’ll show the formation of active molecules and active droploids from passive colloidal building blocks; the emergence of non-Boltzmann statistics and active-depletion forces between plates in an active bath; and the environment topography alters the way to multicellularity in the bacterium Myxococcus xanthus.
