Abstract: We consider self-propelled particles undergoing run-and-tumble dynamics asexhibited by E. coli in one dimension. Building on previous analyses atdrift-diffusion level for the one-particle density, we add both interactionsand noise, enabling discussion of domain formation by -self-trapping-, andother collective phenomena. Mapping onto detailed-balance systems is possiblein certain cases.
