Swarming by Nature and by Design

Andrea Bertozzi, University of California, Los Angeles

The cohesive movement of a biological population is a commonly observed natural phenomenon. With the advent of platforms of unmanned vehicles, such phenomena have attracted a renewed interest from the engineering community.

This talk will cover a survey of the speakers research and related work in this area ranging from aggregation models in nonlinear partial differential equations to control algorithms and robotic testbed experiments.

We conclude with a discussion of some interesting problems for the mathematics community.
