@article{Abedi2014CollectiveDO, title={Collective Dynamics of Interacting Particles in Unsteady Flows}, author={Maryam Abedi and Mir Abbas Jalali}, journal={SIAM J. Appl. Dyn. Syst.}, year={2014}, volume={13}, pages={194-209} }

We use the Fokker--Planck equation and its moment equations to study the collective behavior of interacting particles in unsteady one-dimensional flows. Particles interact according to a long-range attractive and a short-range repulsive potential field known as Morse potential. We assume Stokesian drag force between particles and their carrier fluid and find analytic single-peaked traveling solutions for the spatial density of particles in the catastrophic phase. In steady flow conditions the…

The comparable evolution dynamics and steady states of the discrete model with the continuum model suggest that the discrete stochastic approach is a promising way of probing aggregation patterns arising from two- and three-dimensional nonlocal interaction conservation equations.
