Protocols for Negotiating Complex Contracts
TLDR
We propose a new family of negotiation protocols for binary issue dependencies that achieve near-optimal outcomes for negotiations with binary dependencies. Expand

  • 1 September 1999
TLDR
We constructed a simple evolutionary system, evoloop, on a deterministic nine-state five-neighbor cellular automata (CA) space by improving the structurally dissolvable self-reproducing loop we had previously contrived [14]. Expand

Developmental changes in spontaneous electrocortical activity and network organization from early to late childhood
TLDR
We investigated the development of spontaneous (resting state) cerebral electric fields and their network organization from early to late childhood in a large community sample of children. Expand

Modeling complex systems with adaptive networks
TLDR
In this paper, we introduce fundamental concepts and unique properties of adaptive networks through a brief, non-comprehensive review of recent literature on mathematical/computational modeling and analysis of such networks. Expand

  • 10 September 2007
TLDR
We present new methods of decentralized control and interactive design for artificial swarms of a large number of agents that can spontaneously organize and maintain non-trivial heterogeneous formations. Expand

Relationship between measures of fitness and time scale in evolution.
The notion of fitness is central in evolutionary biology. We use a simple spatially extended predator-prey or host-pathogen model to show a generic case where the average number of offspring of anExpand

The Dynamics of Collaborative Design: Insights from Complex Systems and Negotiation Research
TLDR
We show that collaborative design dynamics can be understood as reflecting two basic facts: (1) collaborative design is a kind of distributed network, and (2) the agents in this network are self-interested. Expand
