Interactive groups with related limited efficiency
A model is set up in which two groups can potentially interact butthis interaction is subject to some limitations. It is shown how allocation of resources proceeds under such conditions. The following results were obtained: asymptotically the dominated group is allowed some share of total resources; this is true even when the dominating group handles only an 'egoistic' objective function; fluctuations can be introduced by the allocative actions of the dominating group; threshold phenomena for reversing actions can be isolated; dominating actions can be used to combat cyclical behaviour of the system. One of the conclusions is that techniques like differential gaming might be adequate for exploring simultaneously satisfactory relations.
