Introducing Geographic Constraints

In the previous slide, each agent reconnected to a random other agent in the Society. This behavior corresponds to real-life communities with no geographic constraints. For instance, someone looking to chat over a world-wide computer network is as likely to find Billy from Alabama as she is Batiste from Abidjan.

Most of the time, however, geographic constraints associated with agent interactions do exist. A New Yorker, for example, meets many more New Yorkers than Moscovites outside the cyberspace. Accordingly, go to the next slide for a society with territorial constraints implemented, where each agent is comparatively likely to interact with her neighbors.
