Publication Summary and Abstract

Glancy, J., Gross, R., Wilson, S.P. (2013), A minimal model of the phase transition into thermoregulatory huddling, Proceedings of Living Machines 2, Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems (LNCS) 8064:381-383.

Huddling by endotherms is an important model through which to study the emergence of complexity. Canals et al. (2011) have recently described the emergence of huddling in rodents as a phase transition mediated by the ambient environmental temperature [1]. We present an agent-based model as a minimal account of the reported transition to huddling at low temperatures. Simulation results suggest that the huddle self-organises as ambient temperature changes drive individuals from ‘orient-from-contacts’ to ‘orient-to-contact’ behaviours.
