Collective dynamics of complex systems is often observed in our nature, in which self-propelled individuals organize themselves into an ordered motion through simple rules. To name a few, the aggregation of bacteria, focking of birds, swarming of fish, herding of sheep etc correspond to such a collective motion.
In my talk, I will concern on the Cucker-Smale (CS) model constructed by S. Smale and F. Cucker in 2007.
I will introduce the time asymptotical behavior, phase transition and critical value etc. in CS model.
Dr. Xiongtao Zhang received his B.S. in mathematics from Wuhan University in 2009 and earned a Ph.D. in mathematics, under the supervision of Prof. Shih-Hsien Yu, from National University of Singapore in 2014. He then worked at Seoul National University as a Postdoctoral Researcher until Sept 2017. After that, he joined center for mathematical sciences, Huazhong University of Science and Technology as associate professor. His main research areas include boundary effects and surface wave in hyperbolic systems, kinetic theory and its application in qualitative and quantitative descriptions of collective behaviors.
