【Abstract】

<正>Many bacteria swim by rotating helical flagella.This type of locomotion avoids the constraints of kinematic reversibility,which nlakes this class of microorganisms motile in the absence of the inertia of fluid.We study how such helical swimming is affected by spatial confinements,such as in a porous medium.For simplic-
