Delays in Social Models of Replicator Dynamics

Languages of publication



This paper discusses the impact of delayed information on the social models of replicator dynamic. Internal fixed point is here the optimal decision in the population. Examples and simulations confirm presented results. Here is described both the standard replicator dynamic and the modified model, which assumes that players imitate opponents taking strategies with a higher average payoff in the past. Moreover the model, in which each strategy has its own delay is presented
