Passive Particles in an Active Medium (E)
Chen Miaoqing


In this topic the influence of the active swimmers on the dynamics of passive particles is examined. The cases of 1) freely suspended passive tracers and 2) trapped passive tracers both in presence of a bath of active particles are considered within the context of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics.
