Applying Evolutionary Approaches for Cooperation
In this chapter we describe a simple general method by which existing evolutionary algorithms originating in the biological or social sciences can be translated into always-on protocols that adapt at run time. We then discuss how this approach has been applied to import a novel cooperation producing algorithm into a simulated peer-to-peer network. Finally we discuss possible applications and open issues.
