Collective motion and oscillator synchronization

Rodolphe Sepulchre, Derek Paley and Naomi Leonard

To appear in Proceedings of the 2003 Block Island Workshop on Cooperative Control, eds. V.J. Kumar, N.E. Leonard, A.S. Morse, Springer-Verlag.
This paper studies connections between phase models of coupled oscillators and kinematic models of groups of self-propelled particles. These connections are exploited in the analysis and design of feedback control laws for the individuals that stabilize collective motions for the group.
