Interaction Probabilities Through Time I

Note: in order to run the simulation referred to in this slide, go here, to the Java Applet version. You will be directed to download the latest version of the Java plug-in.

We construct a 12 member society in which the first four agents form a minority. We assign facts to these agents as follows:

Minority Only Facts Facts: 0-4
Common Facts Fact 5
Majority Only Facts Facts: 6-11

Press "Go" to run this society for 100 time steps and see what happens to the interaction probabilities in the graph below. We use a blue line to represent the intragroup probability and a green line to represent the intergroup probability.
