Abstract

Insect societies are formed by a huge number of individuals in interaction. Ant behavior is simple and, apparently, predictable, but recent results suggest that low-dimensional chaotic dynamics would be implicated at the individual level dynamics. In this paper, we explore several recent experimental results concerning global properties of ant societies, with the individuals defined as chaotic automata
