Emergence in collective dynamics using kinetic theory

Sara Merino-Aceituno (U of Vienna)

Dec 01. 2022, 11:00 — 12:00

In this talk, I will introduce how kinetic theory is applied to investigate emergence in collective dynamics. In particular, the goal is to derive continuum models from agent-based models. I will talk mostly about Vicsek-type models where agents move at a constant speed while trying to adopt the same configuration as their neighbors. This theory can be extended to investigate various biological setups like cell migration, bacteria dynamics, bird flocking, ant trail formation, etc.
