Rock-Paper-Scissors, Differential Games and Biological Diversity [article]

Tung Mai and Ioannis Panageas and Will Ratcliff and Vijay V. Vazirani and Peter Yunker
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We model a situation in which a collection of species derive their fitnesses via a rock-paper-scissors-type game; however, the precise payoffs are a function of the environment.  ...  We cast our model in the setting of a differential game and we show that for a certain setting of parameters, this dynamics cycles.  ...  Acknowledgements Ioannis Panageas would like to acknowledge a MIT-SUTD postdoctoral fellowship and thank Georgios Piliouras for pointing out [18] and fruitful discussions.  ...

Nonlinear dynamics of the rock-paper-scissors game with mutations

Diverse Auto-Curriculum is Critical for Successful Real-World Multiagent Learning Systems [article]

Yaodong Yang, Jun Luo, Ying Wen, Oliver Slumbers, Daniel Graves, Haitham Bou Ammar, Jun Wang, Matthew E. Taylor
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In order to extend MARL methods to real-world domains outside of video games, we envision in this blue sky paper that maintaining a diversity-aware auto-curriculum is critical for successful MARL applications  ...  Specifically, we argue that behavioural diversity is a pivotal, yet under-explored, component for real-world multiagent learning systems, and that significant work remains in understanding how to design  ...  The central feature of such non-transitive relations can be thought of as analogous to a Rock-Paper-Scissors game, where rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock.  ...

Bacterial Games [chapter]

Erwin Frey, Tobias Reichenbach
2011 The Frontiers Collection  
Major research goals are to identify and understand mechanisms that ensures viability of microbial colonies by allowing for species diversity, cooperative behavior and other kinds of "social" behavior.  ...  A synthesis of evolutionary game theory, nonlinear dynamics, and the theory of stochastic processes provides the mathematical tools and conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of these ecological  ...  We are indebted to Benjamin Andrae, Maximilian Berr, Jonas Cremer, Alexander Dobrinevsky, Anna Melbinger, Mauro Mobilia, Steffen Rulands, and Anton Winkler, with whom we had the pleasure to work on game  ...

Mobility promotes and jeopardizes biodiversity in rock–paper–scissors games

Tobias Reichenbach, Mauro Mobilia, Erwin Frey
2007 Nature  
Such non-transitive relations lead to an evolution with central features represented by the 'rock-paper-scissors' game, where rock crushes scissors, scissors cut paper, and paper wraps rock.  ...  However, population mobility is a central feature of real ecosystems: animals migrate, bacteria run and tumble. Here, we observe a critical influence of mobility on species diversity.  ...  Bathe and M. Leisner for inspiring discussions and helpful comments on the manuscript.
