A direct link between active matter and sheared granular systems
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2021.
The similarity in mechanical properties of dense active matter and sheared amorphous solids has been noted in recent years without a rigorous examination of the underlying mechanism. We develop a mean-field model that predicts that their critical behavior-as measured by their avalanche statistics-should be equivalent in infinite dimension...More
