Entropy production in active turbulence — •Byjesh Nalini Radhakrishnan, Thomas Schmidt, and Etienne Fodor — Department of physics and material science, University of Luxembourg
Active particles like bacteria and sperm cells sustain a continuous intake and dissipation of energy. Consequently, they are intrinsically out of equilibrium which leads to a non-vanishing entropy production rate (EPR) even in steady states. Quantifying how the EPR varies in different collective phases is crucial in developing a thermodynamic framework for active matter. In this work, we look at the EPR in active turbulence. We use Active Model H, a continuum model for active particles in a momentum-conserving fluid, to study turbulence in contractile scalar active systems. We measure the local EPR in numerical simulations, which unveils the role of the noise and activity parameters on the EPR in active turbulent systems.
