A Mechanism for Value-Sensitive Decision-Making
Stochastic simulation shows that for two sufficiently poor but equal alternatives, deadlock between the two persists until a third, superior alternative is discovered (at time ), at which point it is selected by the decision-maker.
The three-alternative model simulated here is a simple extension of the two-alternative model of Eq. 1, as described in section S.2 of Text S1. Noise parameter .
