Multi-Agent System Dynamics: Bifurcation and Behavior of Animal Groups
TLDR
This paper reviews recent work on models and methods for studying the mechanisms of collective migration and collective decision-making in high-performing animal groups and proves systematically how behavior depends on parameters that model the system and the environment.
Multi-agent system dynamics: Bifurcation and behavior of animal groups
Emergence of leadership in a robotic fish group under diverging individual personality traits
TLDR
It is shown that the robotic fish’s personality traits diverge when the group carries out difficult foraging tasks in the authors' experiments, and self-organization takes place to help the group to adapt to the level of difficulties of the tasks without inter-individual communication.
Using Network Dynamical Influence to Drive Consensus
TLDR
It is shown that dynamical influence not only ranks the nodes, but also provides a naturally optimised distribution of effort to steer a network from one state to another.
Self-organized sorting limits behavioral variability in swarms
TLDR
It is shown that swarming is abolished above a critical fraction of non-aligners who do not participate in alignment, but in certain regimes, swarms above the critical threshold can dynamically reorganize and sort out excess non- aligners to maintain the average fraction close to the critical value.
Optimal Leader Selection in Multi-agent Networks: Joint Centrality, Robustness and Controllability
TLDR
This dissertation determines which nodes in the network should be selected as leader nodes to maximize controllability and robustness of the leader-follower consensus dynamics to noise and defines a new notion of centrality of a set of nodes, called joint centrality, that will be maximized by the optimal leader set for robustness to noise.
Stochastic dynamics of social patch foraging decisions
TLDR
A mechanistic model is developed that accounts for the behavior of individuals foraging together and departing food patches following an evidence accumulation process, and establishes a social patch foraging framework to parse and identify deliberative decision strategies, to distinguish different forms of social communication, and to allow model fitting to real world animal behavior data.
Joint Centrality Distinguishes Optimal Leaders in Noisy Networks
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the performance of any given set of noise-free leaders depends on their influence as determined by a new graph measure of the centrality of a set, and it is proved that the optimal leader is the node with maximal information centrality for the noise-corrupted and noise-nothing cases.
Information centrality and optimal leader selection in noisy networks
TLDR
It is proved that the single optimal leader is the node in the network graph with maximal information centrality and that the optimal pair maximizes a joint centrality, which depends on the informationcentrality of each leader and how well the pair covers the graph.
Information Spreading Dynamics on Adaptive Social Networks
TLDR
Simulation results and theoretical analyses indicated that the adaptive process, in which informed individuals would rewire the links between the informed neighbors to a random non-neighbor node, can enhance information diffusion (leading to much broader spreading), and two threshold values exist for the information diffusion on adaptive networks.

Leadership, collective motion and the evolution of migratory strategies
TLDR
Results and insights from a recent computational model developed to investigate the evolution of leadership and collective motion in migratory populations are discussed and it is shown that, for a broad range of parameter values, only a small proportion of the population gather directional information while the majority employ social cues alone.
Leadership, social learning, and the maintenance (or collapse) of migratory populations
Long-distance animal migrations are complex, population-level phenomena that emerge in seasonal landscapes as a result of the interplay between environmental influences (e.g., resources, predators)
Social interactions, information use, and the evolution of collective migration
TLDR
This work explores the evolution of migratory behavior using an individual-based spatially explicit model that incorporates the costs and benefits of obtaining directional cues from the environment and evolvable social interactions among migrating individuals and demonstrates that collective migratory strategies evolve under a wide range of ecological scenarios.
Emergent Collective Behavior in Multi-Agent Systems: An Evolutionary Perspective
TLDR
A network-based evolutionary model is designed to understand the evolution of leadership in biological collectives, with a focus on the role of network topology on the emergent dynamics.
Specialization and evolutionary branching within migratory populations
TLDR
Through the use of an approximation of social interactions, this work demonstrates the emergence of a stable, polymorphic population consisting of an uninformed subpopulation that is dependent upon a specialized group of leaders.
Consensus and Cooperation in Networked Multi-Agent Systems
This paper provides a theoretical framework for analysis of consensus algorithms for multi-agent networked systems with an emphasis on the role of directed information flow, robustness to changes in
Context-dependent interaction leads to emergent search behavior in social aggregates
TLDR
This method is based on the collective behavior of autonomous individuals following simple social interaction rules which are modified according to the local conditions they are experiencing and is able to locate the source of a chemical signal and in doing so displays an awareness of the environment not present at the individual level.
Evolutionarily singular strategies and the adaptive growth and branching of the evolutionary tree
TLDR
A haploid version of Levene's ‘soft selection’ model is developed as a specific example to demonstrate evolutionary dynamics and branching in monomorphic and polymorphic populations.
Effective leadership and decision-making in animal groups on the move
TLDR
It is revealed that the larger the group the smaller the proportion of informed individuals needed to guide the group, and that only a very small proportion ofinformed individuals is required to achieve great accuracy.
Coordination of groups of mobile autonomous agents using nearest neighbor rules
TLDR
A theoretical explanation for the observed behavior of the Vicsek model, which proves to be a graphic example of a switched linear system which is stable, but for which there does not exist a common quadratic Lyapunov function.
