Thin-film models for an active gel

Abstract:

In this study, we present a free-boundary problem for an active liquid crystal starting with the Beris–Edwards theory that uses a tensorial order parameter and includes active contributions to the stress tensor and then derive from it the Eriksen model for an active polar gel and scalar order parameter to analyse the rich defect structure observed in applications such as the adenosinetriphosphate-driven motion of a thin film of an actin filament network. The small aspect ratio of the film geo...
