Abstract:

Concepts relevant to a theory of group design are presented. Criteria appropriate to evaluating group interaction are developed. A simple model of interaction within a group is presented. Using a linear programming formulation, the value of group interaction is maximized. The emphasis throughout is on interaction value as a function of the subjects discussed, the knowledgability of the speakers and the interests of the listeners. This, rather than the amount of action per se, is the focus of the current work and future plans discussed for expanding the model. Author
