Temporal effects of agent aggregation in the dynamics of a competing population

We propose a model of a competing population whose agents have a tendency to balance their decisions in time. We find phase transitions to oscillatory behavior, explainable by the aggregation of agents into two groups. On a longer time scale, we find that the aggregation of smart agents is able to explain the lifetime distribution of epochs to 8 decades of probability.
