In an effort to better understand complex biological systems, the game “Connect Four” is generalized to be a stochastic contest between two teams. Members of each team typically possess “sensors” that provide some information on the nearby deployment of the pieces. Sensing something interesting increases the probability that a given team member will move… CONTINUE READING
