CMX is a research group aimed at the development and analysis of novel algorithmic ideas underlying emerging applications in the physical, biological, social and information sciences.  We are distinguished by a shared value system built on the development of foundational mathematical understanding, and the deployment of this understanding to impact on emerging key scientific and technological challenges.

An Anisotropic Interaction Model for Simulating Fingerprints ▦

     Motivated by the formation of fingerprint patterns we consider a class of interaction models with short-range repulsive, long-range attractive forces whose orientations depend on an underlying stress field. This stress field introduces an anisotropy leading to complex patterns which do not occur in the associated isotropic models. The transition between the isotropic and the anisotropic model can be characterized by one of the model parameters and we study the variation of this parameter both analytically and numerically. We analyze the steady states and their stability by considering the particle model and the associated mean-field equations. Besides, we propose a bio-inspired model to simulate fingerprint patterns as stationary solutions by choosing the underlying tensor field appropriately.
