Evolution and co-evolution of individuals and groups in environment

J. Rouchier, O. Barreteau, F. Bousquet, H. Proton
Proceedings International Conference on Multi Agent Systems (Cat. No.98EX160)  
To study the social organisation of sets of agents managing common property goods, we use multi-agent simulations. This paper describes how the idea of group is analysed in this context.  ...  group and the relations between them ?  ...  The emergence of these collective frameworks is found in multi-agent systems. Co-operative behaviours appear spontaneously in groups, depending on the size and structure of these groups [16] .  ...

Darwinism, organizational evolution and survival: key challenges for future research

Gianpaolo Abatecola, Fiorenza Belussi, Dermot Breslin, Igor Filatotchev
2015 Journal of Management and Governance  
exploring the relationship between co-evolution, re-use of knowledge, adaptation, and exaptation processes.  ...  We discuss key themes in the organizational evolution research that have emerged in recent years.  ...  In addition, freed from the ties of specific individuals and groups, knowledge can evolve, as it becomes adapted to new uses and environmental challenges.  ...

2003 Journal of evolutionary economics  
This article gives an overview of evolutionary theories of institutions in biology, sociology, anthropology and economics.  ...  Surprisingly few insights on institutional evolution from natural and social sciences have made their way into economics.  ...  We thank John Foster, John Gowdy and an anonymous referee for helpful comments on earlier versions of this paper.  ...

Co-adapting mobile sensor networks to maximize coverage in dynamic environments

François-Michel De Rainville, Christian Gagné, Denis Laurendeau
2012 Proceedings of the fourteenth international conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference companion - GECCO Companion '12  
This paper presents a novel approach to optimize the position of a swarm of robots to accomplish sensing tasks based on cooperative co-evolution.  ...  Results show that the introduced cooperative method simultaneously finds the right number of sensors while also optimizing their positions in static and dynamic environments.  ...  Acknowledgements This work is financialy supported by the FQRNT (Québec) and the NSERC (Canada).  ...

Conceptualizing and Modeling Multi-Level Organizational Co-evolution [chapter]

Dermot Breslin, Daniela Romano, James Percival
2016 Agent-Based Simulation of Organizational Behavior  
We argue that practice-based interpretations offer an alternative approach in the modeling of co-evolution, unpacking the complexity and interconnected agency within and beyond organizations.  ...  While a number of researchers have developed co-evolutionary accounts of organizational change, these efforts have been constrained by an entity interpretation of the unit of co-evolution.  ...  We work in close cooperation 3. We keep in touch constantly 4. We communicate and express our opinions to each other frequently 5.  ...

Symbiosis Enables the Evolution of Rare Complexes in Structured Environments [chapter]

Rob Mills, Richard A. Watson
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that this process of 'symbiotic evolution' leads to rare and adaptively significant complexes that are unavailable via non-associative evolution.  ...  We present a model that considers evolvable symbiotic associations between species, such that one species can have an influence over the likelihood of other species being present in its environment.  ...  Thanks to Jason Noble, Simon Powers, Johannes van der Horst, and Devin Drown for useful discussions.  ...

The Evolution of Different Forms of Sociality: Behavioral Mechanisms and Eco-Evolutionary Feedback

Daniel J. van der Post, Rineke Verbrugge, Charlotte K. Hemelrijk, Long Wang
2015 PLoS ONE  
Our approach to studying such trajectories is to use evolutionary case-studies, so that we can investigate how grouping co-evolves with a multitude of individual characteristics.  ...  The evolutionary maintenance of small groups, and cooperative vigilance in those groups, is therefore achieved simultaneously.  ...  We also thank the Editor, Leticia Avilés and one anonymous reviewer for useful feedback.  ...

2003 International Journal of Modern Physics C  
The two populations living in one environment co-exist much longer if they are genetically separated -they compete as two species instead of crossbreeding.  ...  When two populations independently evolving for some time were mixed in one environmental niche of the limited size and crossbreeding between them was allowed, the average lifespan of hybrids was significantly  ...  Stauffer for comments and discussions.

High-order punishment and the evolution of cooperation

Bastian Baranski, Karlheinz Schmitt, Danny Seis, Rafael Slodzinski, Simon Steeg, Nils Wiemann, Marc Zimmermann, Thomas Bartz-Beielstein, Rüdiger Ehlers, Thusinthan Kajendran, Björn Kosslers, Jörn Mehnen (+3 others)
2006 Proceedings of the 8th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '06  
The Prisoner's Dilemma and the Public Goods Game are models to study mechanisms leading to the evolution of cooperation.  ...  This paper demonstrates that high-order punishment opportunities can maintain a higher cooperation level in an agent based simulation of the evolution of cooperation.  ...  The simulation results show that viscosity sustains the evolution of cooperation in a sufficiently benign environment. It does not maintain the evolution of cooperation in an austere environment.  ...
