Contents

In this topic the concept of self-propulsion in biological systems is discussed. In particular the consequences of living in an incompressible/viscous medium on the micron length scale. The concept of irreversibility will be introduced via Purcell's famous scallop theorem. The various mechanisms by which micro-organisms achieve motion are considered in connection to irreversibility.
