Summary

In this research, we propose group dynamics that enhances the performance of multiagent systems in the Social Dilemmas. As the mechanisms for group formation, mutual choice mechanism for 2-IPD is extended to that for N-IPD. Furthermore, group split based on the metanorm of mutual choice is introduced. As a result of simulations with an evolutionary approach, we confirm the enhancement of the performance of the systems consisting of self-interest agents.
