Abstract/Media

In this talk we consider local minimizers (in the topology of transport distances) of the interaction energy associated to a repulsive-attractive potential. We show how the dimensionality of the support of local minimizers is related to the repulsive strength of the potential at the origin. This is related to pattern formation in some simple models of collective behavior.
