Simple Deterministic Rules in International Relations
Evangelos Georgiadis Wolfram Research
I investigated implications of simple deterministic rules in International Relations. The objective was to look at a 2 alliance, multi power system with a simple deterministic alliance switching rule and two alternate power updating rules. I, then, varied power number, initial power for each, and the initial alliance configuration. I found two basic forms of behavior, each rather simple but one less stable than the other.
