The evolution of cooperation in populations involving multi-player games and time delays
Evolutionary games on graphs and those with time delays are difficult to analyze analytically. Usually one has to rely on numerical and stochastic simulations. The main objective of this project is to develop approximation techniques and tools which will make possible an analytical treatment of such evolutionary processes. We adopt mean-field type models and their generalizations in the form of systems of ordinary differential equations. Approximation of stochastic processes by deterministic evolution has been studied before. We will build on existing concepts and models having in mind specific applications to problems of sustained cooperation in evolutionary game models of social dilemmas. Moreover, we will explore joint effects of stochasticity and time delays on evolution of interacting populations in evolutionary and epidemiological models.
