The use of multiplayer game theory in the modelling of biological populations

By M Broom


The use of game theory in modeling the natural world is widespread. However, this modeling mainly involves two player games only, or "playing the field" games where an individual plays against an entire (infinite) population. Game-theoretic models are common in economics as well, but in this case the use of multiplayer games has not been neglected. This article outlines where multiplayer games have been used in evolutionary modeling and the merits and limitations of these games. Finally, we discuss why there has been so little use of multiplayer games in the biological setting and what developments might be useful
