From flocks of birds to swarming robots: prof. Tamás Vicsek explains the common rules underlying large-scale collective motion.
With examples ranging from coherently moving bacteria to flocks of birds and the spectacular flight of a group of unmanned aerial robots, prof. Tamás Vicsek explains how to find the most common rules underlying the large scale processes that take place during collective motion.
Prof. dr. Tamás Vicsek is Professor of Physics at the Department of Biological Physics, Eotvos University, Budapest. Over the past 30 years, he has been involved in computational and experimental research on fractals, pattern formation, the collective motion of bacterial colonies and the structure and evolution of complex networks.
