  Modelling the flight of starlings  By  Simon Byford ‐ sjb17u@cs.nott.ac.uk  Supervised by  Dr. Jason Atkin ‐ jaa@cs.nott.ac.uk      School of Computer Science  University of Nottingham      Submitted May 2011, in partial fulfilment of the conditions of the award of the degree:  BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Computer Science  I hereby declare that this dissertation is all my own work, except as indicated in the text  Signature:      May 6th, 2011  Abstract    A  project  was  undertaken  to  build  a  software  model  capable  of  accurately  simulating  the flocking behaviour of starlings. After reviewing the relevant literature and studying  the mechanics of flocking, such a model was carefully designed and implemented in the  Java  programming  language.  The  model  is  capable  of  exhibiting  a  range  of  flocking  behaviours  with  simulations  comprising  upwards  of  200  individual  birds.  A  great  number of behavioural parameters are available to edit before and during simulations,  where  their  effects  can  be  viewed  in  real  time.  The  ability  to  spawn  virtual  falcons  as  well as starlings introduces the notion of a predator which is an area largely unexplored  in  previous  models.  A  number  of  interesting  observations  were  made  during  the  analysis phase of this project, including the fact that simulations employing metric and  topological distances induce much the same flocking behaviour, and that the application  can  typically  handle  simulations  comprising  up  to  500  individual  birds  before  experiencing  significant  drops  in  performance.  In  summary,  the  project  was  deemed  highly successful and a number of possible future extensions were proposed.    1      Table of contents

In the first half of the game the Falcons took nine shots on goal but it wasn't until the middle of the first half that the Falcons were able to find the back of the net.
