Title: Evolutionary dynamics on networks

Abstract: More and more large-scale social, economic, biological and technological complex systems can be seen as complex networks of interacting autonomous agents. In this talk, we model such collective interactive dynamics as development of evolutionary games on networks. The nodes of the network are the players and the edges indicate two-player repeated games between neighboring agents. We then perform global convergence analysis for the resulted continuous- or discrete-time dynamical systems to identify under what conditions the agents converge to sub-optimal global states. More importantly, we propose ways to introduce local incentive or manipulation to some agents in order to drive the population to some desired global state, towards optimal control of evolutionary games on networks.
