Abstract

In this paper, we analyze a simple adaptive model of competition called the Minority Game, which is used in analyzing competitive phenomena in markets, and suggest that the core elements required for the formation of self-organization are: (i) rules that place a good constraint on each agent's behavior, and (ii) rules that lead to indirect coordination, which is called "stigmergy." Finally, we tested the points suggested by this research in solving the El Farol's bar problem, which is an extended version of the Minority Game.
