1301.5574 (Nicola Bellomo et al.)

From the Micro-scale to Collective Crowd Dynamics    [PDF]

Nicola Bellomo, Abdelghani Bellouquid, Damian Knopoff
This paper deals with the kinetic theory modeling of crowd dynamics with the aim of showing how the dynamics at the micro-scale is transferred to the dynamics of collective behaviors. The derivation of a new model is followed by a qualitative analysis of the initial value problem. Existence of solutions is proved for arbitrary large times, while simulations are developed by computational schemes based on splitting methods, where the transport equations treated by finite difference methods for hyperbolic equations. Some preliminary reasonings toward the modeling of panic conditions are proposed.
