Emergent rheotaxis of shape-changing swimmers in Poiseuille flow

Abstract:

A simple model for the motion of shape-changing swimmers in Poiseuille flow was recently proposed and numerically explored by Omori et al. (2022). These explorations hinted that a small number of interacting mechanics can drive longtime behaviours in this model, cast in the context of the well-studied alga Chlamydomonas and its rheotactic behaviours in such flows. Here, we explore this model analytically via a multiple-scale asymptotic analysis, seeking to formally identify the causal factors...
