1.961 - Lecture 17 – Hydrodynamic signals in the plankton

1.961 Life at low Reynolds numbers

The fundamental solution to Stokes’ equation: the Stokeslet
Other important solutions: stresslet, rotlet, potential dipole
Modeling a copepod’s pheromone trail
The fluid mechanical signature of a sinking organism
Is swimming the same as sinking for mechano-detection?
Other detection scenarios: feeding currents, rotating particles, shear
