A pedagogical review of the mathematical modelling in fluid dynamics necessary to understand the motility of most microorganisms on Earth.

About the author

Eric Lauga is Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. He is the author, or co-author, of over 170 publications in the field of fluid mechanics, biophysics and soft matter. He is a recipient of a CAREER Award from the US National Science Foundation (2008), and of three awards from the American Physical Society: the Andreas Acrivos Dissertation Award in Fluid Dynamics (2006), the François Frenkiel Award for Fluid Mechanics (2015) and the Early Career Award for Soft Matter Research (2018). Lauga is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.


Fluid dynamics plays a crucial role in many cellular processes, for example the locomotion of cells such as bacteria and spermatozoa. This textbook details the mathematical modelling necessary to understand cell motility in fluids, with in-depth explanations suitable for beginning graduate students and researchers new to the field.
