Abstract: We present a simple proof on the formation of flocking to the CuckerSmale system based on the explicit construction of a Lyapunov functional. Our results also provide a unified condition on the initial states in which the exponential convergence to flocking state will occur. For large particle systems, we give a rigorous justification for the meanfield limit from the many particle CuckerSmale system to the Vlasov equation with flocking dissipation as the number of particles goes to infinity. © 2009 International Press.
