  • I need to put together an equation that describes group cohesion. Something like
    • C = Var(L) * Var(O) * Avg(V)/Var(V) * Si, for some population p, over a period of time t, where
      • C is group cohesion
      • Var(x) is the variance
      • Avg(x) is the average
      • L is location
      • O is orientation
      • V is velocity
      • Si is social influence, which is in turn a function of awareness and reach. In network terms, the range is from unconnected through partially connected to fully connected
    • C should have (at least?) three phases: Nomad (low), Flocking(mid), and Stampede(high). The intuition here is that the higher the velocity, the lower the variance has to be in location and orientation to obtain the same level of cohesion. A high velocity, tightly clustered group is a stampede, where social influence overrides environmental awareness.
