Escalation of Memory Length in Finite Populations.

Summary of "Escalation of Memory Length in Finite Populations."

The escalation of complexity is a commonly cited benefit of coevolutionary systems, but computational simulations generally fail to demonstrate this capacity to a satisfactory degree. We draw on a macroevolutionary theory of escalation to develop a set of criteria for coevolutionary systems to exhibit escalation of strategic complexity. By expanding on a previously developed model of the evolution of memory length for cooperative strategies by Kristian Lindgren, we resolve previously observed limitations on the escalation of memory length by extending operators of evolutionary variation. We present long-term coevolutionary simulations showing that larger population sizes tend to support greater escalation of complexity than smaller ones do. Additionally, we investigate the sensitivity of escalation during transitions of complexity. The Lindgren model has often been used to argue that the escalation of competitive coevolution has intrinsic limitations. Our simulations show that coevolutionary arms races can continue to escalate in computational simulations given sufficient population sizes.

Cyclization and Relaxation Dynamics of Finite-Length Collapsed Self-Avoiding Polymers.

We study the cyclization and relaxation dynamics of ideal as well as interacting polymers as a function of chain length N. For the cyclization time τ_{cyc} of ideal chains we recover the known scalin...

Morphological diversity of female camel (Camelus dromedarius) populations in Morocco.

Fourteen body measurements of 132 adult female camels belonging to three populations Guerzni (60), Khouari (28), and Marmouri (44) reared in 38 herds of 8 provinces of Southern Morocco were studied to...

Dose painting techniques based on dose escalation to hypoxic regions are usually governed by the spatial distribution of Oxygen Enhancement Ratio (OER) derived from PET or MRI images. The goal of this...

Symptom-clusters of subjective cognitive decline among cognitively-normal older persons and their utilities in predicting objective cognitive performance: structural equation modelling.

Prior literature on subjective cognitive decline (SCD) mostly focused on memory complaints. It is uncertain whether the other non-memory complaints are equally relevant and can be used, alongside memo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Type of declarative memory, consisting of personal memory in contrast to general knowledge.

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.

Neurological process involving the conversion of learned information into long-term memory.

Complex mental function having four distinct phases: (1) memorizing or learning, (2) retention, (3) recall, and (4) recognition. Clinically, it is usually subdivided into immediate, recent, and remote memory.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
