The research about crowd dynamics has undergone a dramatic development in the recent years. This fast advancement made it rather difficult for researchers in applied mathematics to keep contacts with the variety of analytical and numerical techniques recently introduced, as well as with the new problems being considered. Indeed, Crowd Dynamics is of interest to disciplines ranging from pure mathematical analysis to operation research, from numerical analysis to computer graphics, from model theory to statistics. The variety of MSC classifications labeling the papers of this special issue testifies the broadness of the subjects covered hereafter and, hence, also of this whole field.
   This special issue of Networks and Heterogeneous Media aims at bridging several different research directions of interest to applied mathematicians. Each of the present papers describes key problems of particular interest for the authors, points at the related most relevant techniques and includes the corresponding main results. The common spirit is to share, also with non specialists of the very same field, achieved results in their full depth.
