Modelling the errors in Path Integration

It is a well-versed fact that Path Integration is subject to cumulative error and that this explains the investment in learning other navigational cues. However, the nature of this cumulative error and its dependence on the information used by an animal is less clear. For a good few years Allen Cheung has investigated this question with cleverly put together analytical arguments. This paper continues that line of work by developing a general path and noise model which can be used to investigate the robustness of various components of the path integration system.
