Emergent Collective Behavior in Multi-Agent Systems : An Evolutionary Perspective

  title={Emergent Collective Behavior in Multi-Agent Systems : An Evolutionary Perspective},

The behavior is said to be emergent when it cannot be understood simply as the sum of its constituent parts. Further, group-level outcomes can in turn influence individual interactions.
