A review of existing models describing the panicked crowd behavior: model ADLPV, based on the graphic-analytical methods; model based on cellular automata; models based on the equations of psychophysical interaction; models based on multi-agent approach; models based on scalar potential field. Strengths and weaknesses of the analyzed models have been identified. The comparative analysis of the considered models of the panicking crowd have been carried out. Recommendations which need to be considered when developing new models have been formulated.
