I give five even though it is not a comprehensive book for Evolutionary Game Theory(EGT) at all. It is because the book is not meant to be. It contains a brief introduction to Game Theory and Evolutionary Game Theory. However, it has comprehensive... read more

About the Book

This book is a guide to implement simple agent-based evolutionary models using NetLogo.

All the models we implement are agent-based, i.e. individual agents and their interactions are explicitly represented in the models. To formalise agents’ interactions we use the basic framework of Evolutionary Game Theory.

NetLogo is a multi-agent programmable modeling environment used by hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and researchers all around the globe. No coding experience is necessary to fully understand the contents of this book.
