We study the emergence of trust behavior at both the individual and the population levels. At the individual level, in contrast to prior research that views trust as fixed traits, we model the emergence of trust or cooperation as a result of trial and error learning by a computer algorithm borrowed from the field of artificial intelligence (Watkins 1989). We show that trust can indeed arise as a result of trial and error learning. Emergence of trust at the population level is modeled by a grid… 
Getting and Staying Out of a Low Trust Trap: The Roles of Tipping and Institutional Reform
Given that there are significant endogenous effects in trust that cause people to follow trust norms when deciding whether to trust others, trust can be modeled as a supermodular game or a game with

Greed and Fear in Network Reciprocity: Implications for Cooperation among Organizations
TLDR
It is shown that embedding interaction in networks generally leads Greing and Fear to have divergent, interactive, and highly nonlinear effects on cooperation at the macro level, even when individuals respond identically to Greed and Fear.
Catalysts of Cooperation in System of Systems: The Role of Diversity and Network Structure
TLDR
The authors' parallel-execution agent-based simulations show that each strategy evolves toward its own structural niche with suspicious TFT maintaining the highest survival rate over all structures and increases in network density make the TFT strategies even more dominant, and connectivity randomness encourages cooperation in sparse networks.
Evolution of state-dependent risk preferences
TLDR
Simulation and analytical results for evolutionary lottery games demonstrate that for every population dynamic in this class except for the replicator dynamic, the interplay between risk-taking and sequentiality of choices allows state-dependent risk behavior to have an evolutionary advantage over expected-value maximization.
Learning and Cooperation in Sequential Games
TLDR
This work model agents with a reinforce ment learning algorithm and analyze cooperative behavior in a sequential prisoner's dilemma game and attributes the reciprocal-like behavior to the structural flow of information, which reduces the risks of exploitation faced by the second-mover.

TLDR
It is shown that under certain assumptions cooperative behavior may emerge when multi-agent Q-learning is applied in an iterated prisoner's dilemma and an important consequence of the analysis is that multi- agent Q- learning may result in non-Nash behavior.

The evolution of trust and cooperation between strangers: A computational model.
Social and economic exchanges often occur between strangers who cannot rely on past behavior or the prospect of future interactions to establish mutual trust. Game theorists formalize this problem as

TLDR
It is shown how cooperation and trust can develop together through social interactions and a suited learning mechanism.
Learning Mutual Trust
TLDR
Stochastically-greedy agents who select actions based on expected utility considering probability distributions over the actions of the opponent can perform better (by developing mutually trusting behavior) than those that explicitly attempt to converge to Nash Equilibrium.
Natural Selection and Social Learning in Prisoner's Dilemma
Evolutionary game theory has been used to study the viability of cooperation in a predatory world. Although previous studies have helped to identify robust strategies, little is known about how
The Emergence of Social Organization in the Prisoner's Dilemma: How Context-Preservation and Other Factors Promote Cooperation
TLDR
Results of agent-based simulation experiments in which the basic activity of the agents is to play the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma are reported, which support a generalized view of "neighborhood" where the important factor is the degree to which the interaction processes lead to context preservation, independent of any particular topology.
The evolution of cooperation.
TLDR
A model is developed based on the concept of an evolutionarily stable strategy in the context of the Prisoner's Dilemma game to show how cooperation based on reciprocity can get started in an asocial world, can thrive while interacting with a wide range of other strategies, and can resist invasion once fully established.
Individual Strategy and Social Structure: An Evolutionary Theory of Institutions
TLDR
A reorientation of game theory in which players are not hyper-rational and knowledge is incomplete is suggested; a simple adaptive learning process is proposed; and this framework is applied to the study of social and economic institutions.
A strategy of win-stay, lose-shift that outperforms tit-for-tat in the Prisoner's Dilemma game
TLDR
Extended evolutionary simulations of heterogeneous ensembles of probabilistic strategies including mutation and selection are presented and the unexpected success of another protagonist: Pavlov is reported, suggesting that cooperative behaviour in natural situations may often be based on win-stay, lose-shift.
