Assuming that the system can, at least on average, be fully described by the two parameters a and, we can plot the evolution of activity propagation as trajectories in the ( a , )-con"gurationspace.

Points in con-gurationspace correspond to congurationsof the pair. The conguration space partitions into blocked space where the parts overlap, free space where they are separate, and contact space where they touch.
