The underlying population dynamics when a group of agents compete for a finite, non-stationary resource is investigated and the transient and long-run aggregate properties of the systems are dependent upon the rate of change of the resource availability as well as the heterogeneous decision making strategies adopted by the agent population.

Evolutionary quantum game

We present a study of a dynamical quantum game. Each agent has a `memory' of her performance over the previous m timesteps, and her strategy can evolve in time. The game exhibits distinct regimes of

Evolution of imitation networks in Minority Game model

The Minority Game is adapted to study the “imitation dilemma”, i.e. the tradeoff between local benefit and global harm coming from imitation, and the in-degree distribution is found to follow a power law in two cases of those studied.

A Game perspective to complex adaptive systems

The results indicate that natural selection and genetic algorithms can lead the system perform optimally and increase the success of individuals remarkably, and the characteristic behaviour of the system is different from that observed in studies using evolutionary dynamics.

Toy models of markets with heterogeneous interacting agents in Economics With Heterogeneous Inter

Simple models of financial markets with heterogeneous adaptive agents have been recently investigated using tools of statistical mechanics of disordered systems. We review and discuss the main




New continuous and stochastic extensions of the minority game, devised as a fundamental model for a market of competitive agents, are introduced and studied in the context of statistical physics. The

Adaptive Competition, Market Efficiency, and Phase Transitions

This work analyzes a simple model that incorporates fundamental features of social and biological systems that simultaneously and adaptively compete for limited resources, thereby altering their environment.

Self-Organized Segregation within an Evolving Population

It is shown that a population of competing agents with similar capabilities and knowledge will tend to self-segregate into opposing groups characterized by extreme behavior.
