Wave-number locking in spatially forced pattern-forming systems
We use the Swift-Hohenberg model and normal-form equations to study wave-number locking in two-dimensional systems as a result of one-dimensional spatially periodic weak forcing. The freedom of theExpand

Wavenumber locking and pattern formation in spatially forced systems
We study wavenumber locking and pattern formation resulting from weak spatially periodic one-dimensional forcing of two-dimensional systems. We consider systems that produce stationary or travelingExpand

COME TOGETHER: Multi-Agent Geometric Consensus (Gathering, Rendezvous, Clustering, Aggregation)
TLDR
This report surveys results on distributed systems comprising mobile agents that are identical and anonymous, oblivious and interact solely by adjusting their motion according to the relative location of their neighbours. Expand

Chase Your Farthest Neighbour
TLDR
We consider a group of mobile robotic agents, identical and indistinguishable, having no memory (oblivious) and no common frame of reference (neither absolute location nor a common orientation). Expand

Chase Your Farthest Neighbour : A simple gathering algorithm for anonymous , oblivious and non-communicating agents
We consider a group of mobile robotic agents, identical and indistinguishable, having no memory (oblivious) and no common frame of reference (neither absolute location nor a common orientation).Expand

Discrete Time Gathering of Agents with Bearing Only and Limited Visibility Range Sensors
We analyze a gathering process for a group of mobile robotic agents, identical and indistinguishable, with no memory (oblivious) and no common frame of reference (neither absolute location nor aExpand

On Steering Swarms
TLDR
The main contribution of this paper is a novel method allowing an external observer/controller to steer and guide swarms of identical and indistinguishable agents, in spite of the agents' lack of information on absolute location and orientation. Expand
