Evolutionary Games I: Statistical Physics
This chapter aims to illustrate some Statistical Physics approaches to EGT. In particular, the first part presents a model for studying the emergence of cooperation, in the Prisoner’s Dilemma, mapping agents to particles of a gas, then using the kinetic theory of gases. The second part analyzes the dynamics of the Public Goods Game by varying the parameter named ‘Temperature’ (known also as ‘Noise’) appearing in the equation adopted for performing the Strategy Revision Phase. Notably, results show how to link this game with the Voter Model.
