Abstract

In these lecture notes, prepared for the Microswimmers Summer
School 2015 at Forschungszentrum J¨ulich, I discuss the well known
Vicsek model for collective motion and its main properties. In particular, I discuss its algorithmical implementation and the basic properties of its universality class. I present results from numerical simulations and insist on the role played by symmetries and conservation laws. Analytical arguments are presented in an accessible and simplified way, but ample references are given for more advanced readings.
