Abstract : In this paper, we intend to show that the flocking phenomenon observed in many animal species behaviors, may be modeled as a synchronization process occurring within entity states. Although flocking has been widely studied and simulated in Swarm Intelligence, few works mention synchronization as a key aspect of the problem and model it properly. This paper proposes a modeling in terms of a reactive multi-agent system composed of interacting logistic agents moving in an environment. This specific MAS called Logistic MAS (LMAS) takes actually inspiration from the coupled map lattice field, which provides also many tools to analyse convergence and stability of the system. We develop our approach in both theoretical and applied way to demonstrate its relevance.
