Since its development, Stokesian dynamics has been a leading approach for the dynamic simulation of suspensions of particles at arbitrary concentrations with full hydrodynamic interactions. Although developed originally for the simulation of passive particle suspensions, the Stokesian dynamics framework is equally well suited to the analysis and dynamic simulation of suspensions of active particles, as we elucidate here. We show how the reciprocal theorem can be used to formulate the exact dynamics for a suspension of arbitrary active particles, and then show how the Stokesian dynamics method provides a rigorous way to approximate and compute the dynamics of dense active suspensions where many-body hydrodynamic interactions are important.
