Each of several agents updates his estimate of the same random variable whenever he makes a new observation or receives the estimate made by another agent. In turn, each agent transmits his estimate to a randomly chosen subset of the other agents. A subset of agents forms a communicating ring if for every pairunderline{m}, underline{p}of ring members, there is a sequence of ring membersunderline{m} = underline{m}_{1}, underline{m}_{2}, ... , underline{m}_{n+1} = underline{p}such thatunderline{m}_{i}sends his estimate tounderline{m}_{i+1}infinitely often. If each ring member knows that he is a ring member, then the estimates of all the ring members asymptotically agree. However, this common limit can depend upon the order in which estimates are transmitted.
