Active Matter

Formulate the nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of active systems – collections of interacting self-propelled entities, from birds to bacteria to self-catalytic colloids that spontaneously organize in coherent structures at large scales – and elucidate the behavior of new realizations of active particles that can exchange information, carry out logical tasks, undergo genetic switches, grow and signal.
