Abstract : The present paper deals with the modeling of formation and destruction of swarms using a nonlinear Boltzmann–like equation. We introduce a new model that contains parameters characterizing the attractiveness or repulsiveness of individuals. The model can represent both gregarious and solitarious behaviors. In the latter case we provide a mathematical analysis in the space homogeneous case. Moreover we identify relevant hydrodynamic limits on a formal way. We introduce some preliminary results in the case of gregarious behavior and we indicate open problems for further research. Finally , we provide numerical simulations to illustrate the ability of the model to represent formation or destruction of swarms.
