The Prisoner's dilemma is the main game theoretical framework in which the onset and maintainance of cooperation in biological populations is studied. In the spatial version of the model, we study the robustness of cooperation in heterogeneous ecosystems in spatial evolutionary games by considering site diluted lattices. The main result is that, due to… (More)

We explore the minimal conditions for sustainable cooperation on a spatially distributed population of memoryless, unconditional strategies (cooperators and defectors) in presence of unbiased, non-contingent mobility in the context of the Prisoner's Dilemma game. We find that cooperative behavior is not only possible but may even be enhanced by such an… (More)

Monte Carlo simulations are used to study lattice gases of particles with extended hard cores on a two-dimensional square lattice. Exclusions of one and up to five nearest neighbors (NN) are considered. These can be mapped onto hard squares of varying side length, lambda (in lattice units), tilted by some angle with respect to the original lattice. In… (More)

The effects of an unconditional move rule in the spatial Prisoner's Dilemma, Snowdrift and Stag Hunt games are studied. Spatial structure by itself is known to modify the outcome of many games when compared with a randomly mixed population, sometimes promoting, sometimes inhibiting cooperation. Here we show that random dilution and mobility may suppress the… (More)

The rock-paper-scissors game and its generalizations with S>3 species are well-studied models for cyclically interacting populations. Four is, however, the minimum number of species that, by allowing other interactions beyond the single, cyclic loop, breaks both the full intransitivity of the food graph and the one-predator, one-prey symmetry. Lütz et al.… (More)

Intransitivity is a property of connected, oriented graphs representing species interactions that may drive their coexistence even in the presence of competition, the standard example being the three species Rock-Paper-Scissors game. We consider here a generalization with four species, the minimum number of species allowing other interactions beyond the… (More)

The dynamics of an extremely diluted neural network with high order synapses acting as corrections to the Hopfield model is investigated. As in the fully connected case, the high order terms may strongly improve the storage capacity of the system. The dynamics displays a very rich behavior, and in particular a new chaotic phase emerges depending on the… (More)

We present results for two different kinds of high order connections between neurons acting as corrections to the Hopfield model. Equilibrium properties are analyzed using the replica mean-field theory and compared with numerical simulations. An optimal learning algorithm for fourth order connections is given that improves the storage capacity without… (More)

– We present an analytical approach to the out of equilibrium dynamics of a class of kinetic lattice gases under gravity. The location of the jamming transition, the critical exponents, and the scaling functions characterizing the relaxation processes are determined. In particular, we find that logarithmic compaction and simple aging are intimately related… (More)

— We study the equilibrium properties of an Ising frustrated lattice gas with a mean field replica approach. This model bridges usual Spin Glasses and a version of Frustrated Percolation model, and has proven relevant to describe the glass transition. It shows a rich phase diagram which in a definite limit reduces to the known Sherrington-Kirkpatrick spin… (More)
