The influence of asymmetry in the coupling between repulsive particles is studied. A prominent example is the social force model for pedestrian dynamics in a long corridor where the asymmetry leads to anisotropy in the repulsion such that pedestrians in front, i.e., in walking direction, have a bigger influence on the pedestrian behavior than those behind. In addition to one-and two-lane free flow situations, a new traveling regime is found that is reminiscent of peristaltic motion. We study the regimes and their respective stability both analytically and numerically. First, we introduce a modified social force model and compute the boundaries between different regimes analytically by a perturbation analysis of the one-lane and two-lane flow. Afterwards, the results are verified by direct numerical simulations in the parameter plane of pedestrian density and repulsion strength from the walls.
