Mean-field limit for particle systems with topological interactions

  title={Mean-field limit for particle systems with topological interactions},
  author={Dario Benedetto and Emanuele Caglioti and Stefano De Rossi},
Many interesting physical systems can be described at the microscopic level as particle dynamics and at the mesoscopic level with kinetic equations. In the wide field of two-body interactions, the link between these two regimes is mathematically well understood in the case of the mean-field limit, i.e. when the density of the particles diverges with their number N , the mean free path vanishes as 1{N and the interaction intensity scales with 1{N . In this limit, each particle feels the… 


On the Dynamics of Large Particle Systems in the Mean Field Limit
This course explains how the usual mean field evolution partial differential equations (PDEs) in Statistical Physics—such as the Vlasov-Poisson system, the vorticity formulation of the
Mean field limit for the one dimensional Vlasov-Poisson equation
We consider systems of $N$ particles in dimension one, driven by pair Coulombian or gravitational interactions. When the number of particles goes to infinity in the so called mean field scaling, we
Flocking dynamics and mean-field limit in the Cucker–Smale-type model with topological interactions
Abstract We introduce a Cucker–Smale-type model for flocking, where the strength of interaction between two agents depends on their relative separation (called “topological distance” in previous
A well-posedness theory in measures for some kinetic models of collective motion
We present existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence results for some kinetic equations motivated by models for the collective behavior of large groups of individuals. Models of this kind have
Some aspects of the inertial spin model for flocks and related kinetic equations
In this paper we study the macroscopic behavior of the inertial spin (IS) model. This model has been recently proposed to describe the collective dynamics of flocks of birds, and its main feature is
Novel type of phase transition in a system of self-driven particles.
Numerical evidence is presented that this model results in a kinetic phase transition from no transport to finite net transport through spontaneous symmetry breaking of the rotational symmetry.
A Mean-Field Limit of the Lohe Matrix Model and Emergent Dynamics
The Lohe matrix model is a continuous-time dynamical system describing the collective dynamics of group elements in the unitary group manifold, and it has been introduced as a toy model of a non

On the derivation of the one dimensional Vlasov equation
Abstract A solution of the one dimensional Vlasov equation is compared to the motion of a system of particles interacting through the one dimensional Coulomb potential. For each value of the time t,
A simple proof of the Cucker-Smale flocking dynamics and mean-field limit
We present a simple proof on the formation of flocking to the Cucker-Smale system based on the explicit construction of a Lyapunov functional. Our results also provide a unified condition on the
