Project description

This project proposes to develop new algorithms and interaction strategies for distributed dynamical systems, by mimicking complex physical models (PDEs, lattice models). The goal is thereby to translate useful collective behaviors from physics to e.g. distribution networks or robotic systems, resulting in more efficient use of shared resources or in tailored reaction to spatially distributed external stimuli.
