A crowd of Microswimmers

It has recently been established that the paradoxical effects observed in crowd dynamics persist in a very wide variety of systems: in a granular silo, in a suspension as well as for a flock of sheep or in a crowd of pedestrians. A physicist’s approach therefore invites us to look for a common physical mechanism behind these measured observables. How microhydrodynamics will affect crowd dynamics is the question we will address in this project.
