Blatant benevolence and conspicuous consumption: when romantic motives elicit strategic costly signals.
Conspicuous displays of consumption and benevolence might serve as "costly signals" of desirable mate qualities. If so, they should vary strategically with manipulations of mating-related motives.Expand

Tracking the Red Queen: Measurements of Adaptive Progress in Co-Evolutionary Simulations
TLDR
We propose a set of appropriate performance measures based on both genetic and behavioral data, and illustrate their use in a simulation of co-evolution between genetically specified continuous-time noisy recurrent neural networks which generate pursuit and evasion behaviors in autonomous agents.

Mutual Mate Choice Can Drive Costly Signaling Even Under Perfect Monogamy
TLDR
We present a simulation model of condition-dependent investment in a signal trait under conditions of perfect monogamy, equal initial offspring number, and differential offspring mortality based on inherited genetic quality minus signal cost. Expand
