Abstract:

A computer program is presented for the study of complex adaptive search processes. The complexities of this application have required the definition of a fairly general network. Much of the programming might lend itself equally well to such network problems as scientific management control PERT, SCANS, or to systematic study of the branching characteristics of computer programs. The advance that has been made is mostly in the representation of more complex spaces. Basic mechanisms have been developed that facilitate a variety of basic search strategies. However, the actual variation of strategies is not yet a program function in this respect we have yet to simulate truly complex behavior. Author
