Complex Signals and Compositionality

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on an earlier point in the evolution of signaling. It considers how one might come to have — in the most primitive way — a complex signal composed of simple signals. This is done with the smallest departure possible from signaling models that have been previously examined in this book.

Keywords: signals; signaling; evolution
