Honeybee swarming behavior using diffusion adaptation

Honeybees swarm when they move to a new site for their hive. During the process of swarming, their behavior can be analyzed by classifying them as informed scouts or uninformed bees, where the scouts have information about the destination while the uninformed bees follow the scouts. We model the network of bees as a network of mobile nodes with the nodes having asymmetric access to information about the location of the new hive. Diffusion adaptation is then used to model and explain the swarming behavior of bees.
