Other Games on Static Complex Networks

  • Julia Poncela Casasnovas
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In the last chapter, we have been discussing in some detail the dynamics and microscopical organization of the the so-called weak Prisoner’s Dilemma Game [1] on static complex networks, where the payoff for a cooperator against a defector was fixed to \(S=0\) (strictly speaking, for this value of \(S\), we are really at the border between the Prisoner’s Dilemma game and the Hawks and Doves -HD- game). In this chapter we want to address very briefly the issue of other evolutionary games on graphs.
