We consider an anisotropic first-order ODE aggregation model and its approximation by a second-order relaxation system. The relaxation model contains a small parameter $\varepsilon$, which can be interpreted as inertia or response time. We examine rigorously the limit $\varepsilon \to 0$ of solutions to the relaxation system. Of major interest is how discontinuous (in velocities) solutions to the first-order model are captured in the zero-inertia limit. We find that near such discontinuitiesâ€¦Â Expand
