QSS 30.04 Evolutionary Game Theory and Applications

Pioneered by John Maynard Smith and others, evolutionary game theory has become an important approach to studying a wide range of biological and social problems, such as microbial interactions and animal behavior. In evolutionary game dynamics, the fitness of individuals depends on the relative abundance of all individual types in the population, and higher-fitness individual types tend to increase in abundance. This course introduces basic concepts in evolutionary game theory, including evolutionarily stable strategies, replicator dynamics, finite populations, and games on networks, along with applications to social evolution, particularly to understanding human cooperation.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
