Effects of updating the synchronous or asynchronous particles first on polarised group formation from Asynchrony induces polarization in attraction-based models of collective motion

Average polarisation of groups of size N=10,50,100,200 as function of proportion of asynchronously updating particles Na when (A) the asynchronously updating particles update before the synchronously updating particles, and (B) the asynchronously updating particles update after the synchronously updating particles. We see that while there are some differences in the exact shape of the curves and the bars, these are small and likely an effect of the fact that we only ran 100 simulations for each c for each group type and each simulation result will be unique because of random initial conditions and random update order of asynchronously updating particles.
