Abstract
We present a numerical analysis of the influence of boundary and initial conditions on the performance of discrete infotaxis. We find that the decision-making process and the trajectory followed by the agent towards the source show a dependece of the configuration of the domain in which the agent moves. % In particular, we observe that the size and shape of the domain essentially determine the initial step of the search, which also depends on the presence or absence of wind and the initial number of detections. The initial step is specially relevant in search trajectories under a sparse trace of detections, since it usually determines a persistent direction until the next detection is made, thereby affecting the efficiency and robustness of the algorithm. We observe how the map of entropy variation presents a global structure and how its minimal values act as attractors for the agents' motions. Finally, we show the importance of the fluctuations induced by the finite boundary in the robustness and efficiency of the strategy.
