Rational versus Evolutionary Dynamics for Games

Josef Hofbauer (1995)
This is a 3 page summary of a talk presented at the

Dynamic Evolutionary Game Theory in Biology and Economics

meeting, August 1995 in Waterloo and Guelph. The Conference Report is available from Ross Cressman , Wilfrid Laurier University.

In this paper I compare the two prime examples of deterministic dynamic approaches to strategic games: the best response dynamics, which models a population of myopic rational players, and the replicator dynamics from evolutionary game theory.
