Abstract

Though the term “grouping” is used very ambiguously in this chapter, we mean it to be a phenomenon such as insect swarming or fish schooling in which a number of animals are involved in movement as a group. In this chapter an attempt is made to describe the motion of swarming individuals, and to comprehend the grouping from the standpoint of advection—diusion processes.
