### Intrinsic models on Riemannian manifolds with bounded curvature

## Abstract

We investigate the long-time behaviour of solutions to a nonlocal partial differential equation on smooth Riemannian manifolds of bounded sectional curvature. The equation models self-collective behaviour with intrinsic interactions that are modeled by an interaction potential. Without the diffusion term, we consider attractive interaction potentials and establish sufficient conditions for a consensus state to form asymptotically. In addition, we quantify the approach to consensus, by deriving a convergence rate for the diameter of the solution’s support. With the diffusion term, the attractive interaction and the diffusion compete. We provide the conditions of the attractive interaction for each part to win.
