A predictive principle for self-organization in active collectives

 

Shake, rattle, and help each other along

 

In classical statistical mechanics, the deterministic dynamics of a many-body system are replaced by a probabilistic description. Chvykov et al. work toward a similar description for the nonequilibrium self-organization of collectives of active particles. In these systems, continuously input energy drives localized fluctuations, but larger-scale ordering can emerge, such as in the flight of a flock of birds. A key concept in their theory is the importance of rattling, whereby ordered patterns emerge through local collisions between neighbors at specific frequencies. The authors demonstrate this behavior using a set of flapping robots and produce related simulations of the robot behavior.

Mutual Aid 101: Toolkit

 

Mutual aid is “cooperation for the sake of the common good.” It’s getting people to come together to meet each other’s needs, recognizing that as humans, our survival is dependent on one another. If you’re interested in learning more about the long history, politics and practice of mutual aid, we encourage you to read the links

The natural world abounds with self-organizing collectives, where large numbers of relatively simple agents use local interactions to produce impressive global behaviors, such that the system as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts (1). Well-known examples include social insect colonies, bird flocks, and fish schools.
