Instabilities and Solitons in Minimal Strips
(American Physical SocietyPhysical Review Letters, 2016-07-01)
We show that highly twisted minimal strips can undergo a nonsingular transition, unlike the singular transitions seen in the Möbius strip and the catenoid. If the strip is nonorientable, this transition is topologically ...
Elastohydrodynamic synchronization of adjacent beating flagella
(American Physical SocietyPhysical Review Fluids, 2016-11-01)
It is now well established that nearby beating pairs of eukaryotic flagella or cilia typically synchronize in phase. A substantial body of evidence supports the hypothesis that hydrodynamic coupling between the active ...
