NN2.05 - Modeling Active Liquid Crystals and Applications to Complex Biological Systems 
December 1, 2014   3:15pm - 3:30pm

I will present a family of continuum models for active liquid crystals and study their inherent instability due to activities and their ramifications to flows of the active liquid crystal system. Various patterns and spatial-temporal structures will be identified and classified in relation to the instability of the model system. Applications of the continuum model to model cell motility and bacterial colonies will be discussed in the end.
