Coordinated Communication, a Dynamical Systems Perspective

Bart De Vylder

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper


Over the past years, several computational models have been introduced to study the coordination of communication between distributed agents. Although these models have given valuable insights into the mechanisms required for letting agents develop a successful communication system, few theoretical results have been obtained which substantiate these findings. In this paper we introduce a theoretical framework which allows us to analyze and compare different existing models in a uniform way. Therefore we only look at the observable behavior of an agent and not at the internal mechanisms that cause that behavior. In particular, we define an agent's response function and argue that a stability analysis of its fixed points reveals crucial information about the convergence properties of the dynamical system of interacting agents.
