Emergence in biology and social sciences
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
Mathematics is the key to linking scientific knowledge at different scales: from microscopic to macroscopic dynamics. This link gives us understanding on the emergence of observable patterns like flocking of birds, leaf venation, opinion dynamics, and network formation, to name a few. In this article, we explore how mathematics is able to traverse scales, and in particular its application in modelling collective motion of bacteria driven by chemical signalling.
