This paper takes a dynamical systems perspective on the semantic structures of dynamic epistemic logic (DEL) and asks the question which orbits DEL-based dynamical systems may produce. The class of dynamical systems based directly on action models produce very limited orbits. Three types of more complex model transformers are equivalent and may produce a large class of orbits, suitable for most modeling purposes.
