Collective ordered motion can emerge spontaneously in many biological systems, such as bird flocks, insect swarms and tissue under dynamic re-organization. This phenomenon is typically modelled under the active fluid formalism. However, anomalous diffusion, characterizing particles whose position mean-square displacement scales non-linearly in time, is also widespread in biology. For instance, Lè ... More

Many systems in physics and biology display somewhat irregular (noisy) but clearly oscillatory behavior. Most of these systems are kept outside of thermodynamic equilibrium (they are active) and can be well described in a stochastic framework. In the talk I review a number of new developments from the theoretical side: how we can test whether the oscillator's dynamics is Markovian (using a non ... More

A surging amount of experimental and simulations studies reveals persistent anomalous diffusion in the membranes and volume of living biological cells as well as other complex fluids [1]. This anomalous diffusion is observed for micron-sized objects down to labelled single molecules such as green fluorescent proteins [2]. In this talk I will present results from large scale computer simulat ... More

We present a model of a Brownian asymmetric simple exclusion process (BASEP) with underdamped Brownian Dynamics, which is an extension on the well-known asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) defined on a discrete lattice. In the BASEP, particles of size $\sigma$ with hardcore interaction are driven by a constant drag force through a one-dimensional cosine potential with period $\lambda$ ... More

Hypertension - a long-term elevation of blood pressure - is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease like coronary artery disease, stroke and kidney failure. The dynamic relationships in cardiovascular system are altered in hypertensive patients but there is a lack of methods providing qualitative and quantitative assessment of these changes. Therefore, the aim of the study is to compare th ... More

The topic of global search in complex environments have been often investigated. But a search can also be local in the sense that it is centered at a given home position. In the latter case, the searcher does not only look for a new target but is also required to regularly return to the home position. Such behavior is typical for many insects and achieves technical importance for self-navigating ... More

Random walks in composite continuous time have recently been introduced in [1]. Composite time flow is the product of translational time flow and fractional time flow [2]. The continuum limit of composite continuous time random walks gives a diffusion equation where the infinitesimal generator of time flow is the sum of a first order and a fractional time derivative. The latter is spec ... More

The Loewner equation in its stochastic incarnation has proved to be an insightful method in studying scaling limits of critical two-dimensional lattice models in statistical mechanics. However, a deterministic counterpart of this equation is also a valuable tool, particularly well-suited for the description of diffusion-controlled growth problems, such as electrodeposition, dielectric breakdown or ...

In this talk we discuss the importance of duality in two-dimensional percolation, from the determination of thresholds exactly (the star-triangle transformation, the triangle-triangle transformation, the isoradial construction) to the question of the behavior of the number of clusters at the critical point, in which duality and the Euler graph formula play important roles. (Work here with Christi ... More

In a recent work [1] a method to derive analytically the roughness evolution was exposed. The method allows to obtain analytically the growths exponents of a surface of $1+1$ dimensions whose dynamics is ruled by cellular automata. The method was successfully applied to the etching model[2,3] and the dynamical exponents where obtained. Those exponents are exact and they are the same as those ... More

We present results for undamped stochastic oscillators driven by additive noise. For various noise types we study analytically and numerically energetic properties of stochastic systems. In general, action of an additive noise results in pumping of energy into the system through an interesting interplay between kinetic and potential energies which are sensitive to the shape of the potential well a ...

Models which contain quantum particle coupled to its environment were analysed many times over recent years or even decades. This old and seemingly clichéd system-environment model has been re-considered many, many times by each next generation of physicists. However, it is still difficult to find a transparent presentation of this fundamental issue of the quantum statistical physics. Furth ... More

Tracking Brownian particles is often employed to map the energy landscape they explore. Such measurements have been exploited to study many biological processes and interactions in soft materials. Yet video tracking is irremediably contaminated by localization errors originating from two imaging artifacts: the “static” errors come from signal noise, and the “dynamic” errors arise from the ...

Random sequential adsorption (RSA) of particles is used in a large variety of contexts to model particle aggregation and jamming. In RSA, a particle's position is selected with uniform probability over the domain and it is then placed sequentially if there is no overlap with any previously placed particles. Particles are not able to move or reorient once being placed. A key feature of these models ... More

We study theoretically a possible physical mechanism for formation of multicellular protrusions in carcinoma at the onset of metastasis. We suggest it might be a consequence of a very simple physical instability resulting from coupling between cell velocity and direction of active traction. It is reminiscent of the classical viscous fingering instability. We use it to show that, for a carcinoma gr ... More

A system kept out of equilibrium in the stationary state by the external source of energy stores an energy in excess over its value at equilibrium. We determine this excess energy, $U$ for two model systems: the ideal gas and the Lennard-Jones liquid. We show that in order to describe non-equilibirum states an external energy source must be explicitly included in the analysis. The final non-e ... More

Various kinds of diffusion in membrane systems commonly occur in biology (see, for example, \cite{h} and references cited in \cite{k1}). The example of diffusion in a composite system is diffusion of drugs through biofilms in which subdiffusion can be present \cite{awdk}. We consider subdiffusion in a system which consists of two different media separated by a thin membrane. In one of the media p ... More

The common definition of entropy is that it represents some quantifier of disorder. In classical physics, the entropy of a physical system is proportional to the quantity of energy no longer available to do physical work. In dynamical systems analysis it usually refers to the rate at which signal loses or gains information. In information theory it directly measures the information in a signal. Th ... More

Dynamics of the systems at the sub-micro level can reveal astounding effects and may often mislead our intuition.

We discuss non-equilibrium steady states of a system of Brownian hard spheres diffusing in a one-dimensional cosine potential, where a small static bias is driving the particles in one direction. The amplitude of the cosine potential in this Brownian asymmetric simple exclusion process (BASEP) is assumed to be large compared to the thermal energy, leading to a hopping motion of the particles betwe ...

We show that work and power fluctuations in quasi-static periodically driven heat engines (PHEs) operating with the Carnot efficiency at nonzero output power are finite and can even vanish. This result contradicts the corresponding findings for steady state HEs (SSHEs), where the Carnot efficiency at nonzero power with finite fluctuations cannot be reached quasi-statically. Moreover, the Fano fact ... More

We provide a unified renewal approach to the problem of random search for several targets under resetting.

The Overdamped Langevin equation describes the inertialess motion of a particle under deterministic drift and thermal noise. The deterministic drift is the result of the combined action of active forces and the diffusivity gradient (the “spurious” force).
