Abstract/Media

A class of kinetic flocking. models is  presented for the collective self-organization of agents. Results  on the global existence of weak solutions as well as a  hydrodynamic limit will be discussed. The main tools employed in the analysis  are the velocity averaging lemma and the relative entropy method. This is joint work with T. Karper and A. Mellet.
