Abstract

We study collective phenomena of self-propagating particles using the nonlinear Kramers equation. A solitary wave state appears from an instability of the spatially uniform ordered state with nonzero average velocity. Two solitary waves with different heights merge into a larger solitary wave. An approximate solution of the solitary wave is constructed using a self-consistent method. The phase transition to the solitary wave state is either first-order or second-order, depending on the control parameters.
