We consider Lévy walk like motion of active deformable particles (ADP) that can move by actively deforming their shape from a circle. A theory is developed by assuming that the equation of velocity includes a coupling with active random deformation. It is shown that the model exhibits a truncated power-law distribution of velocity, whose exponent is determined by the intensity of the random deformation and the strength of the dissipation. In order to apply our model to explain the tracking data… CONTINUE READING
