Collective Motion

We focus on identification of new unifying principles describing the essential aspects of collective motion in living systems, being one of the most relevant and spectacular manifestations of collective behavior. We consider systems ranging from cultures bacterial to migrating tissue cells and employ agent-based models as Cellular Automata and Interacting Particle Systems.
