A droplet bouncing on the surface of a vertically vibrating liquid bath can walk horizontally, guided by the waves it generates on each impact. This results in a self-propelled classical particle-wave entity. By using a one-dimensional theoretical pilot-wave model with a generalized wave form, we investigate the dynamics of this particle-wave entity. We employ different spatial wave forms to understand the role played by both wave oscillations and spatial wave decay in the walking dynamics. We… 
Anomalous transport of a classical wave-particle entity in a tilted potential.
A classical wave-particle entity in the form of a millimetric walking droplet can emerge on the free surface of a vertically vibrating liquid bath. Such wave-particle entities have been shown to
Lorenz-like systems emerging from an integro-differential trajectory equation of a one-dimensional wave-particle entity.
Vertically vibrating a liquid bath can give rise to a self-propelled wave-particle entity on its free surface. The horizontal walking dynamics of this wave-particle entity can be described adequately
Deterministic Active Matter Generated Using Strange Attractors
Strange attractors can be induced by governing differential or integro-differential equations associated with nonlinear dynamical systems, but they may also drive such dynamics. We outline a flexible
Overload wave-memory induces amnesia of a self-propelled particle
Information storage is a key element of autonomous, out-of-equilibrium dynamics, especially for biological and synthetic active matter. In synthetic active matter however, the implementation of

Tunable bimodal explorations of space from memory-driven deterministic dynamics.
A wave-memory-driven system that exhibits intermittent switching between two propulsion modes in free space and shows analogies with intermittent search strategies usually observed in living systems of much higher complexity.
Statistical properties of flip-flop processes associated to the chaotic behavior of systems with strange attractors
The conclusions are that the Aizawa result is mostly accidental, because for other parameter values and for other attractors there are sharp deviations from the Markovian process.
Global Aspects of the Dissipative Dynamical Systems. II: Periodic and Chaotic Responses in the Forced Lorenz System
The response of the chaotic motion under a periodic perturbation is studied using the Lorenz model. The global phase diagram is obtained by computer simulations. The periodic response is
A hydrodynamic analog of Friedel oscillations
This study elucidates a new mechanism for emergent quantum-like statistics in pilot-wave hydrodynamics and so suggests new directions for the nascent field of hydrodynamic quantum analogs.
Bifurcations and chaos in a Lorenz-like pilot-wave system.
The results of a theoretical investigation of an idealized pilot-wave model, in which a particle is guided by a one-dimensional wave that is equipped with the salient features of the hydrodynamic system, are presented.
Emergence of Bimodal Motility in Active Droplets
To explore and react to their environment, living micro-swimmers have developed sophisticated strategies for locomotion - in particular, motility with multiple gaits. To understand the physical
Emergence of superwalking droplets
Abstract A new class of self-propelled droplets, coined superwalkers, has been shown to emerge when a bath of silicone oil is vibrated simultaneously at a given frequency and its subharmonic tone
