Peter Yunker watching stabbing cholera

Physicist Peter Yunker applies mathematical equations to enemy colonies of dueling cholera bacteria to accurately predict the speed dynamics of their phase separation into divided territories, a process similar to the separation of oil and water. The equations were originally used to describe phase separate in materials, namely mixed metals (Model A equations). Credit: Georgia Tech / Rob Felt
