Emergent behavior in collective dynamics

Eitan Tadmor (U. of Maryland)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Wednesday, 13 March 2019 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Abstract:  Collective dynamics is driven by different rules for alignment that self-organize the crowd, and by different external forces that keep the crowd together. Different emerging equilibria are self-organized into clusters, flocks, tissues, parties, etc. I will overview recent results on the hydrodynamics of large-time, large-crowd collective behavior, driven by different “rules of engagement”. In particular, I address the question how short-range interactions lead, over time, to the emergence of long-range patterns, comparing geometric vs. topological interactions.
