Specifically, we at present view the emergent behaviour of simple rule-based agents as outside its scope: in order to apply causal analysis to this case we wouldhavetodefine, first, what we mean by cause and effect in such a system and, second, how we quantify causal effects.
These more detailed causal partitions enable us to examine the effect of civilian actions on the emergent behaviour of the system separately from that of security countermeasures or the setting of the initial value of fear.
Social systems are investigated in this way too, especially their emergent behaviours. The preferred and natural approach is then agent-based modelling.
The rest of the paper is arranged as follows: Section 2 gives a brief overview of the state of the art of formal methods used for formal analysis of robot swarm emergent behaviour. Section 3 introduces explicit state model checking and the state space reduction techniques used later in the experiments.
MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS OF EMERGENT BEHAVIOUR VERIFICATION: STATE OF THE ART
As of 2004, only a few formal approaches existed for analysing the emergent behaviour of swarms [17].
However this comes to the expense of increased difficulty in modelling global emergent behaviour.
