Résumé : Suspensions of chemotactic bacteria develop spatial and temporal structures in response to an initial inhomogeneity in the médium. A theoretical model is presented for the analysis of spatial and temporal évolution of bacterial bands in response to several attrac- tants. Applications of the model to various expérimental cases give good agreement between theory and observation. The theoretical analysis provides further insight to the mechanisms goveming band formation and band migration.
