Two-actor conflict with time delay: A dynamical model

Model
Based on previous mathematical studies, the authors created a model to analyze the conflict dynamics between two actors. In this model, they modified previous nonlinear dynamical models by Liebovitch et al. (2008) and Liebovitch, Vallacher, & Michaels (2010) by considering nonlinear delayed response between two actors. The results of the model show that under certain initial and feedback conditions, a stable neutral equilibrium of conflict may destabilize for some critical values of time...
