    • Sex, Evolution, and the Multiplicative Weights Update Algorithm 

      Meir, Reshef; Parkes, David C. (ACM, 2015)
      We consider a recent innovative theory by Chastain et al. on the role of sex in evolution [PNAS'14]. In short, the theory suggests that the evolutionary process of gene recombination implements the celebrated multiplicative ...
    • Stochastic Evolutionary Dynamics of Direct Reciprocity 

      Imhof, Lorens A.; Nowak, Martin A. (Royal Society, The, 2010)
      Evolutionary game theory is the study of frequency-dependent selection. The success of an individual depends on the frequencies of strategies that are used in the population. We propose a new model for studying evolutionary ...
    • Synergy and Discounting of Cooperation in Social Dilemmas 

      Hauert, Christoph; Michor, Franziska; Nowak, Martin A.; Doebeli, Michael (Elsevier, 2006)
      The emergence and maintenance of cooperation by natural selection is an enduring conundrum in evolutionary biology, which has been studied using a variety of game theoretical models inspired by different biological situations. ...
    • When is Reputation Bad? 

      Ely, Jeffrey; Fudenberg, Drew; Levine, David (Elsevier, 2008)
      In traditional reputation models, the ability to build a reputation is good for the long-run player. In [Ely, J., Valimaki, J., 2003. Bad reputation. NAJ Econ. 4, 2; http://www.najecon.org/v4.htm. Quart. J. Econ. 118 (2003) ...
