### Event details

I'll discuss some basic ideas in evolutionary game theory, such as evolutionary stable states and the replicator equation, and apply these to some simple games such as the prisoners' dilemma, hawk-dove and rock paper scissors. If time I'll also discuss the 'war of attrition' game.

This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
