Models provide agents with a schematic view of the world
  • Emergent(p.4) agents(p.12) must be able to differentiate good strategies from bad.  Models assist them with making such decisions
  • They are hypothesis that use success or failure as an indicator of legitimacy
  • Correlation of model and schematic(p.11) agent action allows evolutionary selection to 'rate' models in particular niche situations
  • Agents can extend the evolved rating mechanism by applying a Shewhart cycle(p.19)
