We study the dynamics of interacting agents from two distinct intermixed populations: one population includes active agents that follow a predetermined velocity field, while the second population contains exclusively passive agents, i.e., agents that have no preferred direction of motion. The orientation of their local velocity is affected by repulsive interactions with the neighboring agents and environment. We present two models that allow for a qualitative analysis of these mixed systems. We show that the residence times of this type of systems containing mixed populations is strongly affected by the interplay between these two populations. After showing our modelling and simulation results, we conclude with a couple of mathematical aspects concerning the well-posedness of our models.

Abstract

We study the dynamics of interacting agents from two distinct intermixed populations: one population includes active agents that follow a predetermined velocity field, while the second population contains exclusively passive agents, i.e., agents that have no preferred direction of motion. The orientation of their local velocity is affected by repulsive interactions with the neighboring agents and environment. We present two models that allow for a qualitative analysis of these mixed systems. We show that the residence times of this type of systems containing mixed populations is strongly affected by the interplay between these two populations. After showing our modelling and simulation results, we conclude with a couple of mathematical aspects concerning the well-posedness of our models.
