Abstract [en]

Few things in nature is as impressive as how some animals seems to be able to organize themselves into larger groups so effortlessly. By learning more about this fascinating be- haviour we might be able to apply this knowledge to find new solutions to our own problems.

One of the first stepping stones to get to an under- standing of flocking behaviour is to be able to simulate it. The first flocking-behavior simulation was done on a com- puter by Craig Reynolds in 1986 he called his simulation program: "Boids". It's still to this day to most used model for simulating flocking behaviour.

This thesis attempts to compare two different defini- tions of the neighbourhood of the boids. The definition of the neighbourhood has great effect of how the boids act.

Abstract [sv]

Få fenomen i naturen är så häpnadsväckande som flockande fåglar och stimmande fiskar. Från djurs beteenden kan vi hämta inspiration till nya lösningar på problem vi står inför.

Första steget att förstå djurs flockbeteende är att hitta en modell som kan simulera beteendet. 1986 konstruerade Craig Reynolds den första lyckade modellen för simulering av flockbeteende, han implementerade den som ett dator- program som kallades "Boids". Modellen som Boids är ba- serad på är än idag den mest använda.

Detta kandidatexamensarbete ämnar att jämföra två olika möjliga definitioner av en boids "grannskap" (neigh- bourhood), grannskapets definition har stor inverkan på hur Boids modellen beteer sig.
