Naomi Ehrich Leonard
Symmetry, bifurcation, and multi-agent decision-making
Leonard will present nonlinear dynamics for distributed decision-making that derive from principles of symmetry and bifurcation. Inspired by studies of animal groups, including house-hunting honeybees and schooling fish, the nonlinear dynamics describe a group of interacting agents that can manage flexibility as well as stability in response to a changing environment.

Ion Transport: Modeling and Computation
In this talk I will present some of the work done by my group on ion transport. The first part is on the analysis and computation of the Poisson-Nernst-Planck (PNP) model. We show that under normal physiological conditions, the PNP system can be approximated by a simpler electro-neutral model, which is easier to solve than the original PNP model. The second part of the talk is on ion transport in biological tissues (eye lens and brain cortex) based on a bi-domain approach.
