Richardson, C. D., Schlagheck, P., Martin, J., Vandewalle, N., & Bastin, T. (2014). On the analogy of quantum wave-particle duality with bouncing droplets.arXiv preprint arXiv:1410.1373.
We explore the hydrodynamic analogues of quantum wave-particle duality in the context of a bouncing droplet system which we model in such a way as to promote comparisons to the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics. Through numerical means we obtain single-slit difraction and double-slit interference patterns that strongly resemble those reported in experiment and that re ect a striking resemblance to quantum diraction and interference on a phenomenological level. We, however, identify evident dierences from quantum mechanics which arise from the governing equations at the fundamental level.
