The models do not have multiple equilibria because they do not yet include the anticipatory behavior that could produce feedback effects leading to system gridlock.
This consideration also complicates the formulation of the anticipatory behavior discussed above: Participants understand the stabilizing role of the central bank and may come to rely on it when forming their expectations--a point we consider later in this summary.
The local instructors were given the study guidelines for O&M and mobility-route training and specific training in how to instruct the participants in traveling a mobility route, recording the instruction given in each section of the route, recognizing anticipatory behavior, and recording anticipatory responses in relation to the landmarks of the route.
In a formal series of 45 videotaped experiments, Jaytee's anticipatory behavior proved to be significantly accurate under double-blind conditions.
The importance of implicit coordination strategies used by effective teams in high-stress situations suggests that shared mental models are useful constructs to explain the anticipatory behavior of team members in the absence or scarcity of communications.
In Robert Rosen's view, the most curious observable characteristic of life with respect to time is anticipatory behavior. All organisms exhibit anticipatory behavior, which Rosen has described as being characteristically model-based: behavioral changes the system is undergoing in the present are caused by events that have not yet happened, but are entailed to happen in the future.
