Title: From vehicular traffic to motion of intelligent groups
Speaker: Benedetto Piccoli, Joseph and Loretta Lopez Professor of Mathematics, Math Department and CCIB, Rutgers University - Camden
Date: Monday, April 5, 2010 12:00 - 1:00 pm
Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ
The talk will start revising recent results from fluid dynamic approach to vehicular traffic modeling. Then we will focus on a new mathematical framework to deal with motion of intelligent groups. Based on a time evolving measure the framework permits to address the problem both from a macroscopic point of view, with applications to pedestrian motion, and a microscopic one, with application to animal groups.
