We review the results of joint experimental and theoretical work on coordinated biological motion demonstrating the close alliance between our observations and other nonequilibrium phase transitions in nature (e.g., the presence of critical fluctuations, critical slowing down). Order parameters are empirically determined and their (low-dimensional) dynamics used in order to explain specific pattern formation in movement, including stability and loss of stability leading to behavioral change… CONTINUE READING
