Fruit flies and electrons: Researchers use physics to predict crowd behavior

Cornell University

Electrons whizzing around each other and humans crammed together at a political rally don’t seem to have much in common, but researchers at Cornell University are connecting the dots. They’ve developed a highly accurate mathematical approach to predict the behavior of crowds of living creatures, using Nobel Prize-winning methods originally developed to study large collections of quantum mechanically interacting electrons. The implications for the study of human behavior are profound, according to the researchers.
