I've modeled out, created and verified
-physical properties of adaptive aerospace materials (03-04)
-evolutionary game theory (04)
-word of mouth process and enterprise software decisions(05-10)
-tech and env impact (06-07)
-bird flocking for multi-robot control (05-08)
...
- computation and communication trade-offs in sensor networks (08-12)
- relationship local vs global optimal for value flow in nets (10-14)
- disease propagation in human contact networks (12-15)
- geographic cost/value asymmetries in advertising (14-17)
...

Battles are won and lost
Bonds form and break
A team evolves as it an its parts do
