Multiple goal pursuit -- to kill two birds with one stone or to fall between two stools ?

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Evgeny Z Meilikhov, Rimma M Farzetdinova


We present the simple phenomenological (but -- analytic) model allowing to formalize description of multitasking, i.e. simultaneous performing several tasks. That process requires distribution of attention, and for great number of goals do not lead to success. Our consideration shows that simultaneous performing more than two tasks is, most likely, impossible.
