报告题目：Active Matter: An Emerging Interdisciplinary Field
报告人：Dr. Hugues Chaté
报告摘要: The recent years have witnessed the emergence and fast growth of research on "active matter", which can be loosely defined as systems in which energy is spent locally to produce directed (athermal, non-random) motion. Examples abound in biology from the subcellular scale to animal groups, but also in man-made systems such as active colloids, shaken granular media, as well as swarms of robots and "ad-hoc" networks in information technologies. Statistical physics naturally plays a central role in this interdisciplinary context thanks to the universal relevance of its tools and concepts. I will illustrate this situation using mostly results from my own work, from numerical and theoretical studies of minimal models of active matter to experimental and observational works in which I was involved.
