Behavioral Diversities of Morphogenetic Collective Systems

Hiroki Sayama

Abstract (Excerpt)

We conducted comparative analyses of self-organized behaviors generated by morphogenetic collective systems of four distinct classes: homogeneous collectives (Class A); heterogeneous collectives (Class B); heterogeneous collectives with dynamic differentiation/re-differentiation (Class C); and heterogeneous collectives with dynamic differentiation/re-differentiation and local information sharing (Class D) (Sayama 2014). In previous work, behaviors of morphogenetic swarm chemistry were sampled by Monte Carlo simulations and characterized in 24 kinetic, topological and dynamical features, although statistical analyses remained simple mean difference tests analyzing each feature independently.
