A glossary for research on human crowd dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents a glossary of terms that are frequently used in research on human crowds. This topic is inherently multidisciplinary as it includes work in and across computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, psychology and social science, for example. We do not view the glossary presented here as a collection of ﬁnalised and formal deﬁnitions. Instead, we suggest it is a snapshot of current views and the starting point of an ongoing process that we hope will be useful in providing some guidance on the use of terminology to develop a mutual understanding across disciplines. The glossary was developed collaboratively during a multidisciplinary meeting. We deliberately allow several deﬁnitions of terms, to reﬂect the conﬂuence of disciplines in the ﬁeld. This also reﬂects the fact not all contributors necessarily agree with all deﬁnitions in this glossary.
