Tuesday 20th passed...

We have had a perfectly ordinary day with just one talk by prof. Bing-Hong Wang, about three different models of co-operation and adaptation and their spatial behavior. He overviewed the Prisoner's Dilemma Game, the Snowdrift Game, and finally the Naming Game. The two first models exhibit various properties as regards the graph structure's and the pay-off matrix' influence on the likelihood of co-operation taking place. In the Naming Game it seems that asymmetric dynamics and emphasizing the role of "hubs" in networks both create interesting effects.
