Human–Environment–Social System and Evolutionary Game Theory

  • Jun Tanimoto
Part of the Evolutionary Economics and Social Complexity Science book series (EESCS, volume 6)


In this chapter, we discuss both the definition of an environmental system as one of the typical dynamical systems and its relation to evolutionary game theory. We also outline the structure of each chapter in this book.
