Serious games [chapter]

Olivier Barreteau, Géraldine Abrami, Bruno Bonté, François Bousquet, Raphaël Mathevet
2021 The Routledge Handbook of Research Methods for Social-Ecological Systems  
The emergence of games in the late 1990s and early 2000s was facilitated by two additional dynamics: the epistemology of models and the gamification of society.  ...  Within the two original threads, some works dealt with SES before the emergence of serious games as a tool to investigate the dynamics of these systems.  ...

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

Tobias Reichenbach, Mauro Mobilia, Erwin Frey
2007 Nature  
In combination with spatial dispersal of static populations, this type of competition results in the stable coexistence of all species and the long-term maintenance of biodiversity.  ...  We establish that this phenomenon is robust, it does not depend on the details of cyclic competition or spatial environment.  ...  Leisner for inspiring discussions and helpful comments on the manuscript.

2020 Land  
The resulting generic forest–water–people games will be the outcome of the project "Scenario evaluation for sustainable agroforestry management through forest-water-people games" (SESAM), for which this  ...  We classify the main forest–water–people nexus issues and the types of land-use solutions that shape local discourses and that are to be brought to life in the games.  ...  Through a cross-case study comparative analysis, we aim to identify how different interpretations of forest-water interaction influences the understanding, awareness and action related to landscape change  ...

Evolutionary games on graphs

György Szabó, Gábor Fáth
2007 Physics reports  
The major theme of the review is in what sense and how the graph structure of interactions can modify and enrich the picture of long term behavioral patterns emerging in evolutionary games.  ...  The last three sections discuss in detail the dynamic behavior of three prominent classes of models: the Prisoner's Dilemma, the Rock-Scissors-Paper game, and Competing Associations.  ...  This work was supported by the Hungarian National Research Fund (OTKA T-47003).  ...

Evolutionary game theory: Theoretical concepts and applications to microbial communities

Erwin Frey
2010 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
A major role of the inherent stochasticity of its dynamics and the spatial segregation of different interacting species into distinct patterns has thereby been established.  ...  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  ...  They have contributed with a multitude of creative ideas and through many insightful discussions have shaped my understanding of the topic.  ...

Ramifying Feedback Networks, Cross-Scale Interactions, and Emergent Quasi Individuals in Conway's Game of Life

Nicholas M. Gotts
2009 Artificial Life  
Ramifying feedback networks and cross-scale interactions play a central role in the emergence and subsequent dynamics of the quasi-population.  ...  Small patterns of state 1 cells on an infinite, otherwise empty array of Conway's Game of Life can produce sets of growing structures resembling in significant ways a population of spatially situated individuals  ...  Tom Rokicki also most generously allowed me to use two of his computers for extended periods.  ...

Weakest-link control of invasive species: Impacts of memory, bounded rationality and network structure in repeated cooperative games [article]

Adam Kleczkowski, Andrew Bate, Michael Redenti, Nick Hanley
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We show that for the basic cooperation game agents select the risk-dominant strategy of a Stag hunt game over the pay-off dominant strategy of implementing control measures.  ...  Finally, we show the importance of industry structure to the emergence of cooperation, with increase in the average coordination number of network nodes leading to increase in the critical biosecurity  ...  , Industry structure also plays an important role in determining whether cooperation emerges or persists in the population, given our interpretation of industry structure as representing the number of  ...

Hunting in Times of Change: Uncovering Indigenous Strategies in the Colombian Amazon Using a Role-Playing Game

Nicole Ponta, Tina Cornioley, Anne Dray, Nathalie van Vliet, Patrick O. Waeber, Claude A. Garcia
2019 Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution  
The use of games as "boundary objects" can guide stakeholders through the process, eliciting the plurality of their strategies, their drivers and how outside change affects them.  ...  Socio-economic conditions change while the game unfolds, opening up to emerging alternative potential scenarios suggested by the stakeholders themselves.  ...  We are grateful to the hunters of Amazonas, for dedicating their time, energy and knowledge to this project. We thank John Garcia Ulloa for creating the study area map.  ...
