The 2015 AMMCS-CAIMS Congress

Interdisciplinary AMMCS Conference Series

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada | June 7-12, 2015

Minisymposium (ID: SS-GTA)

Game Theory: Applications And Evolutionary Games

Monica Cojocaru (University of Guelph), Joe Apaloo (St. Francis Xavier), Ross Cressman (WLU, Waterloo)

The first special session highlights some of the most recent progress made in Nash and generalized Nash games, regarding model formulation and computation of equilibria. Equally of interest are talks on research topics regarding applications of game theory in economics, engineering, operations research, health economics and social sciences. The organizers will extend invitations for speakers in this session, however they are also encouraging direct contact from researchers in diverse scientific fields whose research lies in the areas above. The second special session will be focused on evolutionary game theory which was initially developed almost forty years ago by the biologist, John Maynard Smith, to predict individual behavior in biological systems without explicitly modeling the dynamics underlying their behavioral evolution. Nonetheless, the theory has been used to successfully characterize the dynamic stability of many such models. Recent examples include the Darwinian dynamics approach that combines behavioral evolution with evolving population sizes and the adaptive movements methods that investigate the spatial distributions of species among multiple habitats. The session will feature research advances in these topics as well as in other areas of game theory applied to biology.
