Submission Title

Complexity and Fly Swarms

Location

Jereld R. Nicholson Library: Grand Avenue

Subject Area

Physics/Applied Physics

Description

Complexity is the study of phenomena that emerge from a collection of interacting objects and arises in many systems throughout physics, biology, finance, economics and more. Certain kinds of complex systems can be described by self-organized criticality (SOC). An SOC system is one that is internally driven towards some critical state. Recent experimental work suggests scaling behavior of fly swarms is one of the hallmarks of an SOC system. Our goal is to look for SOC behavior in computational models of fly swarms.
