“Active Brownian Particles – From Individual to Collective Stochastic Dynamics”

Abstract: We discuss the description of biological agents in terms of coupled stochastic differential equations. This approach offers on the one hand a very flexible framwork for modeling individual, as well as large groups of interacting agents, and on the other hand allows us to perform analytical calculations on the long time/large scale behavior of such systems, which provide important insights into their general properties. Here, we will focus on particular application of these kind of models to collective motion in locusts and corresponding interaction models based on so-called “escape-pursuit” interaction behaviors.
