Hydrodynamic Limit of the Kinetic Cucker-smale Flocking Model

  title={Hydrodynamic Limit of the Kinetic Cucker-smale Flocking Model},
  author={Antoine Mellet and Konstantina Trivisa},
The hydrodynamic limit of a kinetic Cucker-Smale flocking model is investigated. The starting point is the model considered in [17], which in addition to free-transport of individuals and a standard Cucker-Smale alignment operator, includes Brownian noise and strong local alignment. The latter was derived in [18] as the singular limit of an alignment operator first introduced by Motsch and Tadmor in [25]. The objective of this work is the rigorous investigation of the singular limit… CONTINUE READING
