The contents of this brief Lecture Note are devoted to modeling, simulations, and applications with the aim of proposing a unified multiscale approach accounting for the physics and the psychology of people in crowds. The modeling approach is based on the mathematical theory of active particles, with the goal of contributing to safety problems of interest for the well-being of our society, for instance, by supporting crisis management in critical situations such as sudden evacuation dynamics induced through complex venues by incidents.


Bouchra Aylaj, University of Hassan II of Casablanca
Bouchra Aylaj is an Associate Professor with Habilitation in mathematics at University of Hassan II of Casablanca, Faculty Ain Chock, Morocco. She started her career in 2006 when she was called to develop a research program on mathematical modelling in biology. Her scientific activity has been focused on the following topics: scientific computing and control for risk analysis and analytical and computational problems in epidemiology. Subsequently, she moved her scientific interests to the modeling and related safety problems focused on social behaviors in human crowds.

Nicola Bellomo, University of Granada
Nicola Bellomo is a distinguished professor at the University of Granada and Professor Emeritus at the Polytechnic University of Torino. He started his career in 1980 when he was called to cover the chair of mathematical physics and applied mathematics due to his scientific achievements on the mathematical theory of the Boltzmann equation and of stochastic differential equations. Subsequently, he moved his scientific interests to the study of living systems, becoming one of the pioneers of the development of active particles methods to the modeling of large systems of self-propelled interacting entities. He is author of two books published by Birkhauser devoted to this topic. In 2009, he delivered the prestigious Shank Lecture on the modeling of immune competition, and was awarded the “Third Level Honor” in 2016 for scientific merits by the President of the Italian Republic.

Livio Gibelli, University of Edinburgh
Livio Gibelli is a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. He received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the Politecnico di Milano and, prior to the current position, he worked as Research Fellow at the University of Warwick, Politecnico di Milano, Politecnico di Torino, and University of British Columbia. His main research interests include non-equilibrium multiphase fluid flows, the continuum description of slightly rarefied gases, the numerical methods for solving kinetic equations, and the modeling of crowd dynamics.

Damian Knopoff, Centro de Investigación y Estudios de Matematica (CONICET) and Famaf (UNC)
Damian Knopoff is a chemical engineer and mathematician, holding a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Cordoba National University. Currently, he is an Associate Researcher at the Argentinian Scientific and Technical Research Council. His main research fields include nonlinear dynamical systems and numerical methods for differential equations with applications to the modeling and simulation of complex living systems, including biological phenomena, socio-economic systems, and crowd dynamics.
