Two methods for control of swarms are described. The first of these methods, the Virtual Attractive-Repulsive (VARP) method, is based on potentials defined between swarm elements. The second control method, or the abstraction method, is based on controlling the macroscopic characteristics of a swarm. The derivation of a new control law based on the second method is described. Numerical simulation and analytical interpretation of the result is also presented.
