An Approach to Stigmergy Issues Based on the Recursive Application of Binary Neighbouring Rules
In this paper we define a set of binary neighbouring rules that can model the elementary action performed by an agent on its environment. The recursive application of the rules provide time sequences (behavioural patterns) which have the capability to model cues since they mimic both the interpretation of the message by an agent and its following behaviour triggered by the interpreted message. The structural analysis of the cues provides the key for the generation of social communication and provides a means to mimic a stigmergy structure.
