Swarming by Nature and by Design

Andrea Bertozzi
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)

The cohesive movement of a biological population is a commonly observed natural phenomenon. With the advent of platforms of unmanned vehicles, such phenomena has attracted a renewed interest from the engineering community. This talk will cover a survey of the speaker's research and related work in this area ranging from aggregation models in nonlinear PDE to control algorithms and robotic testbed experiments. We conclude with a discussion of some interesting problems for the applied mathematics community.
