MMVW01 - Summer School on Mathematics of Movement

Collective organization is everywhere, both around us and within us. In the brain, millions of interconnected cells produce coordinated action, and thought, through chemical and electrical signals. Hundreds of thousands of blind army ants coordinate a massive raid across the rainforest floor. A fish school convulses, as if it is a single entity, when attacked by a predator. How can animal groups move in unison? Do they function as a “collective mind”? From locust swarms to bird flocks, from cells to human societies, I will discuss how, and why, individual behavior produces collective behavior in nature.
