Gathering Group Mobility

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The gathering group mobility model that belongs to a new kind of mobility paradigm and individuals evolve independently and do not explicitly belong to groups, although they exhibit strong collective behavior and are influenced by others, is described. The scale-free distribution with preferential attachment characteristics of the GGMM is also examined.
