Hydrodynamic quantum analogues

Yves Couder, Emmanuel Fort and coworkers have recently reported the results of a startling series of experiments in which droplets bouncing on a fluid surface exhibit several dynamical features previously thought to be peculiar to the microscopic realm. In an attempt to develop a connection between the fluid and quantum systems, we explore the Madelung transformation, whereby Schrodinger’s equation is recast in a hydrodynamic form. New experiments are presented, and indicate the potential value of this hydrodynamic approach to both visualizing and understanding quantum mechanics.
