Kinetic and macroscopic models for complex systems

Effects of emotion in swarming dynamics

Will review the derivation of a general kinetic model for swarming based in the three zones of interaction (attraction, alignment and avoidance) and extend it to describe the influence of emotional contagion between the individuals of the group. We'll address both kind of models numerically, to gain insight on the asymptotic behavior of the system.
