Speakers: Andrei Zvelindovsky

Systems of self-propelling particles (SPP) form a special class of “active matter”. Examples from nature are: bird flocks, fish schools, ants, etc.
One can often see how these animals develop coherent motion.
Emergence of collective behaviour from relatively simple motion of single organisms is on the forefront of interdisciplinary research.
Our meetings are open to all, members and anyone interested. Light refreshments will be available from 18:00, talks start at 18:30.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
