Example text

In a seminal piece, Güth and Yaari (1992) described this test as indirect evolution, because evolution operates on preference parameters that determine behaviour rather than operating directly on behaviour. Precursors of this idea include Becker (1976), and Rubin and Paul (1979), but it was after Güth and Yaari’s work that the literature expanded hugely, including papers such as those by Dekel et al. (1998), Huck and Oechssler (1999), 32 Vengefulness Evolves in Small Groups Kockesen et al. (2000), Ely and Yilankaya (2001), Samuelson and Swinkels (2001), and Possajennikov (2002a, 2002b).

The real problem arises from players’ interactions outside the group. 8 Then we have a free-rider problem with respect to group reputation. Each individual would benefit from using low in interactions outside the group, but the group’s reputation, and hence its members’ fitness, would suffer. The group must in some way regulate its members’ behaviour or things would unravel. We hypothesize that groups themselves possess traits that evolve to solve such problems. Note that social groups, unlike butterflies, use conscious mechanisms to control mimicry.

As et is decreasing in t, it follows that ut is increasing in t. The weak law of large numbers implies that in the long run we have: limt→ ut = 1 − . 14 Complexity Constraints and Adaptive Learning The present value of the decision-maker’s expected utility will depend on the discount factor . But as → 1, the present value, if normalized in the standard way through multiplication by the factor 1 − , will converge to 1 − . 5. A decision-maker who adopts the above, fully rational strategy has to keep track of the difference between the number of rainy days and the number of dry days.
