convergence

Convergence (in evolutionary computing) is a means of modeling the tendency for genetic characteristics of a population to stabilize over time. Convergence (in logic) refers to the property in which different sequences of transformations of the same state terminate at the same end state, independently of the path taken (they are confluent). Basically, it's when variables come together producing an emergent phenomenon.
