The notion of SC is introduced on the third diagram (environment, added
afterwards). The conditions on describing the roles of an agent work to
determine which roles can be played concurrently by the agent. The specific
condition noted means if the chair is of the agent name then the agent can
implement (allows) the chair role. Originally James and I had created a
number of relationships such as permits, forbids, prevents, resets and so

In this notation one can fill place holder's to determine the actual agent.
The agent that represents the current chair is defined as part of the
environment and known by all agents in the system. The non-current chair is
actually an indication for all agents with name != chair name, again a
Any notation inside angle brackets <> will mean a value that it is filled
Note: Please be sure that you have all four diagrams, since half of them
were uploaded later.
