Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of swarms of driven particles

Simulations for several dynamical modes of swarms of active Brownian particles interacting by Morse forces are presented, and rotations, drift, fluctuations of shape, and cluster formation are studied.

Dynamics and stochastics of swarms of self-propelled Brownian particles

We use the model of interacting self-propelled particles as a rough model for the collective motions of cells and organisms. First we study self-propelled motion with linear attracting interactions.

A two-species hydrodynamic model of particles interacting through self-alignment

In this paper, we present a two-species Vicsek model, that describes alignment interactions of self-propelled particles which can either move or not. The model consists in two populations with

Noise-induced transition from translational to rotational motion of swarms.

A model of active Brownian agents interacting via a harmonic attractive potential in a two-dimensional system in the presence of noise possesses a noise-induced transition characterized by the breakdown of translational motion and the onset of swarm rotation as the noise intensity is increased.


We consider an Individual-Based Model for self-rotating particles interacting through local alignment and investigate its macroscopic limit. This model describes self-propelled particles moving in

Self-Organized Hydrodynamics with nonconstant velocity

Motivated by recent experimental and computational results that show a motility-induced clustering transition in self-propelled particle systems, we study an individual model and its corresponding

Collective Motion of Self-Propelled Particles: Kinetic Phase Transition in One Dimension

We demonstrate that a system of self-propelled particles exhibits spontaneous symmetry breaking and self-organization in one dimension, in contrast with previous analytical predictions. To explain

Spontaneously ordered motion of self-propelled particles

We study a biologically inspired, inherently non-equilibrium model consisting of self-propelled particles. In the model, particles move on a plane with a velocity of constant magnitude; they locally

Modellization of self-propelling particles with a coupled map lattice model

We make a simple coupled map lattice model for simulating self-propelling particles. The interaction consists of three parts: viscous 'smearing' where the momenta are averaged over some

Collective motion in a system of motile elements.

A mathematical model of cluster motion seen in nature, including collective rotation, chaos, wandering, occur in computer simulations of this deterministic model by introducing a set dimensionless parameters.

Spontaneous Formation of Vortex in a System of Self Motorised Particles

We study a system of disks with inelastic collisions. Energy is given to the system via a force of constant modulus, applied on each particle in the direction of its velocity. This system shows a

A nonequilibrium continuum dynamical model for the collective motion of large groups of biological organisms and describes a large universality class of microscopic rules, including those recently simulated by Vicsek et al.

Self-organized Vortex State in Two-Dimensional Dictyostelium Dynamics

To provide a mechanism for the self-organization of the Dictyostelium cells, a new model of the dynamics of selfpropelled deformable objects is developed and it is shown that cohesive energy between the cells, together with a coupling between theSelf-generated propulsive force and the cell’s configuration, produces a self-organized vortex state.
