  • Interesting fact: A few species of monkeys and apes see the full spectrum of color, as well as some birds and possibly fish. Most animals, however, perceive the world in shades of gray, including the bull. A bull who charges a bright red cape is charging because of the movement of the cape, not the color.

In science:

In some sense, the problem is difficult only if P is symmetric with respect to the data which the agent is able to perceive.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
This remains true even if the agent can additionally decide which vertices, among those currently visible, are neighbors on the boundary (i.e., the agent can perceive the combinatorial visibility vector, cf.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
As the agent is moving along arcs of Gvis , and as all the data it can perceive is encoded in the labeling of Gvis (the knowledge of n can be encoded easily), we can forget about the underlying polygon P for a while.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
This means that all of the above carries over to the exploration of visibility graphs, provided that the data that the agent is able to perceive can be encoded in an arc-labeling of the directed visibility graph Gvis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
We assume Gvis to be directed and labeled according to the data the agent can perceive, as described before.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
An way of avoiding this difficulty is to equip the agent with an additional sensor which perceives the label of the arc that leads back to the agent’s previous location (cf.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
If the previous move of the agent was from vi to vj , the look-back sensor (Section 4.3) returns the index of the edge (vj , vi ) in the ordered list of edges that the agent perceives at vj (cf.

Section 5) and the capability to perceive the combinatorial visibility vector of a vertex (cf.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
While the sensing model introduced in Section 2 is very simple and hence inherently robust, it requires that all visible vertices can be perceived.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
Komuravelli and Mihalák considered a faulty scenario in which it can happen that the agent perceives two distant vertices as a single virtual vertex (think of vertices that appear very close to each other).
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
Of course, we need to extend the sensing model of the agent to make it aware of the points first: At any vertex the agent now perceives the list of visible points and vertices ordered in counterclockwise order, rather than visible vertices only.

NS is the number of single codewords, and NP is the expected number of codewords that the BS perceives, i.e., NP accounts for all single, collision and phantom codewords, where NP ≤ Ae .
Code-Expanded Random Access for Machine-Type Communications
Each state is characterized by a cardinality, which is the cardinality of the set of codewords perceived by the BS that is created by the given configuration.
Code-Expanded Random Access for Machine-Type Communications
Using this model, NP can be assessed as the average cardinality of the set of the codewords perceived after N − 1 transitions of MC, averaged over the probability distribution of the MC states after N −1 transitions.
Code-Expanded Random Access for Machine-Type Communications
BS perceiving a state configuration given by the i-th state after the N -th user has chosen his codeword.
