    Abstract

    This paper addresses the fluctuating of ants' behavior. Firstly, we report the case of single ant, focusing on the fluctuation of the walk. We found the fluctuations of travel distance and the variance of ant-body direction obey power laws on the time interval. Secondly, we discuss the behavior of several ants from the respect of social insects. The primary result shows a collective behavior of two ants.
