Interaction ruling animal collective behavior depends on topological rather than metric distance: Evidence from a field study

- M. Ballerini, N. Cabibbo, +9 authors V. Zdravković
- Mathematics, Medicine
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 12 September 2007

Numerical models indicate that collective animal behavior may emerge from simple local rules of interaction among the individuals. However, very little is known about the nature of such interaction,… Expand

Asymptotic Freedom in Parton Language

- G. Altarelli, G. Parisi
- Physics
- 8 August 1977

A novel derivation of the Q2 dependence of quark and gluon densities (of given helicity) as predicted by quantum chromodynamics is presented. The main body of predictions of the theory for… Expand

Brownian motion

- G. Parisi
- Medicine
- Nature
- 2005

“I did not believe that it was possible to study the Brownian motion with such a precision.” From a letter from Albert Einstein to Jean Perrin (1909).

Planar diagrams

- E. Brézin, C. Itzykson, G. Parisi, J. Zuber
- 1978

We investigate the planar approximation to field theory through the limit of a large internal symmetry group. This yields an alternative and powerful method to count planar diagrams. Results are… Expand

Simulated tempering: a new Monte Carlo scheme

- E. Marinari, G. Parisi
- Physics
- 22 May 1992

We propose a new global optimization method (Simulated Tempering) for simulating effectively a system with a rough free-energy landscape (i.e., many coexisting states) at finite nonzero temperature.… Expand

Scale-free correlations in starling flocks

- A. Cavagna, A. Cimarelli, +4 authors M. Viale
- Biology, Physics
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 23 November 2009

From bird flocks to fish schools, animal groups often seem to react to environmental perturbations as if of one mind. Most studies in collective animal behavior have aimed to understand how a… Expand
