Abstract.We have studied a spatially extended snowdrift game, in which the players are located on the sites of two-dimensional square lattices and repeatedly have to choose one of the two strategies, either cooperation (C) or defection (D). A player interacts with its nearest neighbors only, and aims at playing a strategy which maximizes its instant pay-off, assuming that the neighboring agents retain their strategies. If a player is not content with its current strategy, it will change… Expand
Extension of a spatial evolutionary coordination game with neutral options.
This work extends the multiagent evolutionary games on a lattice by allowing the players to use additional neutral strategies that provide zero payoffs for both players if one of them selects one of the neutral strategies. Expand
Iterated snowdrift game among mobile agents with myopic expected-reward based decision rule: Numerical and analytical research
The iterated spatial game among the mobile population is an interesting problem in the fields of biological, social and economic sciences. Inspired by some recent works, this paper concentrates onExpand

Comprehensive Monte Carlo simulation experiments show that cooperative behaviour is promoted in the multi-player iterated Snowdrift game, and may be attributed to the combination of spatial reciprocity, based on the inherent capabilities of the genetic algorithm to explore the diverse sets of agents’ strategies, and repeated interactions.

Heterogeneous fitness promotes cooperation in the spatial prisoner's dilemma game
This work quantifies the focal player's environment with a weighted average payoff of its all immediate neighbors via two interdependent parameters, which might shed light on the understanding of the evolution of cooperative behaviors in real life. Expand
Evolution of cooperation in the snowdrift game among mobile players with random-pairing and reinforcement learning
A novel spatial evolutionary snowdrift game model with movable players, in which one player interacts only with the nearest neighbor in each turn, and makes decision in a reinforcement learning way is proposed. Expand
Spatial structure favors cooperative behavior in the snowdrift game with multiple interactive dynamics
Spatial reciprocity is generally regarded as a positive rule facilitating the evolution of cooperation. However, a few recent studies show that, in the snowdrift game, spatial structure still couldExpand
A novel snowdrift game model with edge weighting mechanism on the square lattice
We propose a novel snowdrift game model with edge weighting mechanism to explore the cooperative behaviors among the players on the square lattice. Based on the assumption of three types of weightExpand
Cooperative dynamics of snowdrift game on spatial distance-dependent small-world networks
Abstract.We investigate the evolution of cooperative behaviors of small-world networking agents in a snowdrift game mode, where two agents (nodes) are connected with probability depending on theirExpand
The role of mixed strategies in spatial evolutionary games
We study three-strategy evolutionary games on a square lattice when the third strategy is a mixed strategy of the first and second ones. It is shown that the resultant three-strategy game is aExpand
Spatial prisoner's dilemma with heterogeneous agents: Cooperation, learning and co-evolution
In the evolutionary Prisoner’s Dilemma (PD) game, agents play with each other and update their strategies in every generation according to some microscopic dynamical rule. In its spatial version,Expand

Nonequilibrium second-order phase transitions associated with the extinction of one of the possible strategies are found and the corresponding critical exponents belong to the directed percolation universality class. Expand
Evolutionary prisoner's dilemma game on a square lattice
A simplified prisoner's game is studied on a square lattice when the players interacting with their neighbors can follow two strategies: to cooperate $(C)$ or to defect $(D)$ unconditionally. TheExpand
Evolutionary games and spatial chaos
MUCH attention has been given to the Prisoners' Dilemma as a metaphor for the problems surrounding the evolution of coopera-tive behaviour1–6. This work has dealt with the relative merits of variousExpand
Evolution of Cooperation in a Spatial Prisoner's Dilemma
This study investigates the spatial distribution and the global frequency of agents who can either cooperate or defect and identifies five regimes, each characterized by a distinct spatiotemporal dynamics and a corresponding final spatial structure. Expand
Spatial structure often inhibits the evolution of cooperation in the snowdrift game
The results caution against the common belief that spatial structure is necessarily beneficial for cooperative behaviour, and show that no such general predictions can be made for the effects of spatial structure in the snowdrift game. Expand
Evolutionary dynamics in game-theoretic models
A number of evolutionary models based on the iterated Prisoner's Dilemma with noise are discussed. Different aspects of the evolutionary behaviour are illustrated (i) by varying the trickiness of theExpand

It turns out that the model exhibits some results that contradict the intuition, in particular, some games that a priori seem to favor defection most, may produce a relatively high degree of cooperation. Expand
The Theory of Learning in Games
In economics, most noncooperative game theory has focused on equilibrium in games, especially Nash equilibrium and its refinements. The traditional explanation for when and why equilibrium arises isExpand
The Further Evolution of Cooperation
Empirical andoretical work has led to a deeper understanding of the role of other factors in the evolution of cooperation: the number of players, the range of possible choices, variation in the payoff structure, noise, the shadow of the future, population dynamics, and population structure. Expand
Coevolution of dynamical states and interactions in dynamic networks.
The coupled dynamics of the internal states of a set of interacting elements and the network of interactions among them and the formation of a hierarchical interaction network that sustains a highly cooperative stationary state are explored. Expand
