Evolutionary Games in Natural, Social, and Virtual Worlds

Daniel Friedman and Barry Sinervo

  • This is the first book to offer an exceptionally unified and accessible account of evolutionary games accessible to applied researchers.
  • The authors draw upon many real world examples from biology, computer science, economics, and other disciplines.
  • The book contains a new synthesis of known techniques for sectoring the state space, a new approach to socially mediated interactions featuring the Hadamard product of the fitness matrix with an adjustment matrix, new Dirichlet/maximum likelihood techniques for estimating payoff matrices, and a host of new syntheses of evolutionary game theory techniques with those of population genetics, classical game theory, and information theory.
