Overview

Evolution and learning in games is a topic of current intense interest. Evolution theory is widely viewed as one of the most promising approaches to understanding learning, bounded rationality, and change in complex social environments. This book covers the recent developments with an emphasis on economic contexts and applications. Systematically presenting both deterministic and stochastic evolutionary dynamics which play an important role in evolutionary processes, it also includes the recent stochastic evolutionary framework that has been developed (and applied widely) in the last few years.
