The transmission of information can couple two entities of very different nature, one of them serving as a memory for the other. Here we study the situation in which information is stored in a wave field and serves as a memory that pilots the dynamics of a particle. Such a system can be implemented by a bouncing drop generating surface waves sustained by a parametric forcing. The motion of the resulting “walker” when confined in a harmonic potential well is generally disordered. Here we show that these trajectories correspond to chaotic regimes characterized by intermittent transitions between a discrete set of states. At any given time, the system is in one of these states characterized by a double quantization of size and angular momentum. A low dimensional intermittency determines their respective probabilities. They thus form an eigenstate basis of decomposition for what would be observed as a superposition of states if all measurements were intrusive

Étude d’une dynamique à mémoire de chemin: une expérimentation théorique

Posted by on May 12, 2015 in Bibliography, Core Bibliography, Thesis | 0 comments

“À l’échelle macroscopique, les ondes et les particules sont des objets distincts. La découverte d’objets appelés marcheurs, constitués d’une goutte rebondissant sur un bain liquide vibré verticalement, a montré qu’il n’en était rien. La goutte est autopropulsée, guidée sur la surface du liquide par l’onde qu’elle a elle-même créée lors des rebonds précédents. Ces objets possèdent une dynamique originale dominée par le concept de mémoire de chemin. La structure du champ d’onde qui guide la goutte dépend, en effet, de la position des rebonds passés disposés le long de la trajectoire. La profondeur de cette mémoire peut, de plus, être contrôlée expérimentalement en changeant l’accélération du bain. De nombreuses réalisations expérimentales ont mis en évidence les comportements dynamiques singuliers de ces systèmes couplés goutte/onde. Cette thèse répond à la nécessité d’une compréhension théorique des effets non locaux en temps introduit par la mémoire de chemin. Pour ce faire, nous étudierons l’évolution d’un marcheur numérique en potentiel harmonique bidimensionnel. Un ensemble relativement restreint de trajectoires stables est obtenu. Nous constaterons que ces dernières sont quantifiées en extension moyenne et en moment angulaire moyen. Nous analyserons comment s’imbriquent les différentes échelles de temps de la dynamique, permettant ainsi de dissocier les termes propulsifs à temps court de l’émergence de structures ondulatoires cohérentes à temps long. Nous verrons en quoi l’expression du caractère non-local d’un marcheur permet d’en révéler les symétries internes et d’assurer la convergence du système dynamique vers un jeu d’états propres de basse dimension.”

Abstract :

The work of Couder et al [1] (see also Bush et al [3, 4]) inspired consideration of the impact of a submerged obstacle, providing a local change of depth, on the behavior of oil drops in the bouncing regime. In the linked videos, we recreate some of their results for a drop bouncing on a uniform depth bath of the same liquid undergoing vertical oscillations just below the conditions for Faraday instability, and show a range of new behaviors associated with change of depth.

This article accompanies a uid dynamics video entered into the Gallery of Fluid Motion of the 66th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics.

Stunning Vizualisization of undersurface flows

 

Abstract :

We have investigated the behavior of bouncing drops on a liquid surface by using particle image velocimetry analysis. A drop on an oscillating liquid surface is observed to not coalesce with the liquid and to travel along the surface if the oscillation is strong enough. A streaming vortex pair, induced by the alternatively distorted liquid surface, shows up below a bouncing drop. The time-averaged flow fields of the vortices are measured. In our quasi-one-dimensional setup, there are three stable distances for the drops, which can be characterized by the Faraday wavelength. The interactions of the vortex-mediated bouncing drops are deduced from the streamlines in the liquid bulk. We further show that a three-dimensional vortex ring is induced by a bouncing drop in a square cell.

Plus : a quick report of a numerical experimentation of Schrödinger equation with a “”walker-like”  source term

 

Abstract :

In a paper from 2006, Couder and Fort [1] describe a version of the famous double slit experiment performed with drops bouncing on a vibrated fluid surface, where interference in the particle statistics is found even though it is possible to determine unambiguously which slit the “walking” drop passes. It is one of the first papers in an impressive series, showing that such walking drops closely resemble de Broglie waves and can reproduce typical quantum phenomena like tunneling and quantized states [2–13]. The double slit experiment is, however, a more stringent test of quantum mechanics, because it relies upon superposition and phase coherence. In the present comment we first point out that the experimental data presented in [1] are not convincing, and secondly we argue that it is not possible in general to capture quantum mechanical results in a system, where the trajectory of the particle is well-defined.

Pilot-wave dynamics in a rotating frame: on the emergence of orbital quantization

Posted by on Jul 7, 2014 in Bibliography, Core Bibliography | 0 comments

We present the results of a theoretical investigation of droplets walking on a
rotating vibrating fluid bath. The droplet’s trajectory is described in terms of an
integro-differential equation that incorporates the influence of its propulsive wave
force. Predictions for the dependence of the orbital radius on the bath’s rotation
rate compare favourably with experimental data and capture the progression from
continuous to quantized orbits as the vibrational acceleration is increased. The orbital
quantization is rationalized by assessing the stability of the orbital solutions, and may
be understood as resulting directly from the dynamic constraint imposed on the drop
by its monochromatic guiding wave. The stability analysis also predicts the existence
of wobbling orbital states reported in recent experiments, and the absence of stable
orbits in the limit of large vibrational forcing

Self-organization into quantized eigenstates of a classical wave-driven particle

Posted by on Jul 7, 2014 in Bibliography, Core Bibliography | 0 comments

Perrard, S., Labousse, M., Miskin, M., Fort, E., & Couder, Y. (2014). Self-organization into quantized eigenstates of a classical wave-driven particle.Nature communications5.

A growing number of dynamical situations involve the coupling of particles or singularities with physical waves. In principle these situations are very far from the wave particle duality at quantum scale where the wave is probabilistic by nature. Yet some dual characteristics were observed in a system where a macroscopic droplet is guided by a pilot wave it generates. Here we investigate the behaviour of these entities when confined in a two-dimensional harmonic potential well. A discrete set of stable orbits is observed, in the shape of successive generalized Cassinian-like curves (circles, ovals, lemniscates, trefoils and so on). Along these specific trajectories, the droplet motion is characterized by a double quantization of the orbit spatial extent and of the angular momentum. We show that these trajectories are intertwined with the dynamical build-up of central wave-field modes. These dual self-organized modes form a basis of eigenstates on which more complex motions are naturally decomposed.

Relational causality and classical probability Grounding quantum phenomenology in asuperclassical theory

Abstract. : By introducing the concepts of \superclassicality” and \relational causality”, it is shown here that the velocity eld emerging from an n-slit system can be calculated as an
average classical velocity eld with suitable weightings per channel. No deviation from classical probability theory is necessary in order to arrive at the resulting probability distributions.
In addition, we can directly show that when translating the thus obtained expression for said velocity eld into a more familiar quantum language, one immediately derives the basic
postulate of the de Broglie-Bohm theory, i.e. the guidance equation, and, as a corollary, the exact expression for the quantum mechanical probability density current. Some other direct
consequences of this result will be discussed, such as an explanation of Born’s rule and Sorkin’s first and higher order sum rules, respectively.

Droplets walking in a rotating frame: from quantized orbits to multimodal statistics

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Bibliography, Core Bibliography | 0 comments

Harris, D. M., & Bush, J. W. (2014). Droplets walking in a rotating frame: from quantized orbits to multimodal statistics. Journal of Fluid Mechanics739, 444-464.

We present the results of an experimental investigation of a droplet walking on the
surface of a vibrating rotating fluid bath. Particular attention is given to demonstrating
that the stable quantized orbits reported by Fort et al. (Proc. Natl Acad. Sci.,
vol. 107, 2010, pp. 17515–17520) arise only for a finite range of vibrational
forcing, above which complex trajectories with multimodal statistics arise. We first
present a detailed characterization of the emergence of orbital quantization, and
then examine the system behaviour at higher driving amplitudes. As the vibrational
forcing is increased progressively, stable circular orbits are succeeded by wobbling
orbits with, in turn, stationary and drifting orbital centres. Subsequently, there is a
transition to wobble-and-leap dynamics, in which wobbling of increasing amplitude
about a stationary centre is punctuated by the orbital centre leaping approximately
half a Faraday wavelength. Finally, in the limit of high vibrational forcing, irregular
trajectories emerge, characterized by a multimodal probability distribution that reflects
the persistent dynamic influence of the unstable orbital states.
