Fish schooling is a phenomenon of long-lasting interest in ethology and ecology, widely spread across taxa and ecological contexts, and has attracted much interest from statistical physics and theoretical biology as a case of self-organized behaviour. One topic of intense interest is the search of specific behavioural mechanisms at stake at the individual(More)
Fish schools are able to display a rich variety of collective states and behavioural responses when they are confronted by threats. However, a school's response to perturbations may be different depending on the nature of its collective state. Here we use a previously developed data-driven fish school model to investigate how the school responds to(More)
We determine the basic phase diagram of the fish school model derived from data by Gautrais et al (PLoS Comp. Biol. 8, e1002678 (2012) [1]), exploring its parameter space beyond the parameter values determined experimentally on groups of barred flagtails (Kuhlia mugil) swimming in a shallow tank. A modified model is studied alongside the original one, in(More)

Executive Summary This Expression of Interest describes a physics program to collect and analyze a sample of > 10 12 B-¯ B pairs. The emphasis is on the study of CP violation in the Standard Model via direct measurements of CKM-matrix elements. This physics occurs at low transverse momentum and over a broad rapidity range, which complements the program of(More)
