Special Note: For students there will be an informal introduction to the topic at 1:30 in M416

We propose a continuum stochastic dynamical model for the collective motion of large groups of biological organisms (e.g., flocks of birds, slime molds, etc.). Our model becomes highly non-trivial, and different from the equilibrium model, for dimension d Date: Friday, February 6, 1998
