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.
