Hydrodynamic Interactions in Colloidal and Biological Systems

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation 2006 199 Pages

Physics - Theoretical Physics

Summary

Colloids are widely considered as model systems to elucidate fundamental processes in atomic systems. However, there is one feature truly specific to colloidal suspensions that distinguishes them fundamentally from atomic systems: hydrodynamic interactions, which can lead to fascinating collective behavior.

In this thesis, we present analytical work and simulation results for several micron-scale colloidal and biological systems where the dynamics is predominantly governed by hydrodynamic interactions.
