Does 'unfold' mean 'happen' here? Or like unfolding a pocket?

The combination of the two steps is called a round. Note that we do not, in general, place restrictions on the amount of computation a process does in order to compute the values of its message-generation and state-transition functions. Also note that the model presented here is deterministic, in the sense that the message-generation function and the state-transition function are (single-valued) functions. Thus, given a particular collection of start states, the computation unfolds in a unique way.

I don't know what it means to unfold a pocket, but it's like "proceeds step by step".

" develop, evolve" ( https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/unfold )

Many thanks CJ!

Unfold an envelope? I've never heard of it.

I tried to find sentences in fraze.it which had both of the words "unfold" and "envelope", and there weren't any. Zero.

We open an envelope or close it or seal it, but we don't unfold it.

We can fold or unfold a piece of paper, however. This is a different meaning of "unfold".

Yes I mean like 'unfold a piece of paper,' Emotion: smile

OK. I thought so. That's different from 'events unfolding'.

I suppose, though, that if you had a piece of paper with a lot of folds in it, you might have to unfold it and unfold it and unfold it to find out what was written on it. That's somewhat like the unfolding of events. You have to wait for each step of an action or process to happen, one at a time, like watching the unfolding of paper.

Many thanks for the great explanation!!!
