Self-attraction into spinning eigenstates of a mobile wave source by its emission back-reaction
Physical review. E
The back-reaction of a radiated wave on the emitting source is a general problem. In the most general case, back-reaction on moving wave sources depends on their whole history. Here we study a model system in which a pointlike source is piloted by its own memory-endowed wave field. Such a situation is implemented experimentally using a self-propelled droplet bouncing on a vertically vibrated liquid bath and driven by the waves it generates along its trajectory. The droplet and its associateddoi:10.1103/physreve.94.042224 pmid:27841606 fatcat:ok3qd2hohjfqjaovgmelk7zpca
