Inhomogeneity and apparent organization in animal behavior

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

DOI

Abstract

Sequences of animal behavior are commonly characterized by their order of dependence. A sequence with a high order of dependence is believed to be more organized than one with a low order of dependence. We present a simple model of animal behavior in which apparent organization arises from a simple form of inhomogeneity in the sequence. We apply this model to a short sequence of dolphin vocalizations.
