EGT Reading Group 46 – 50 and a photo
March 26, 2015 3 Comments
Part of the original intent for this blog was to accompany the evolutionary game theory reading group that I started running at McGill in 2010. The blog has taken off, but the reading group has waned. However, since I still have some hope to revive a regular reading group, I have continued to call occasional journal discussion meetings that I organize as the EGT reading group. These meetings are very sparse and highly irregular, not the weekly groups that they were in 2010. For example, since my last update on May 28th, 2013, around 22 months have passed with the group meeting only 5 times. Still, these 5 meetings bring us to a milestone and hence an update on the papers we’ve read:

Robert Vander Velde has been a great help with these recent reading groups, and was the primary presented for EGT 47 and 49. Above is a (blurry) photo of (from left to right) David Basanta and Jacob Scott listening intently to Robert explaining something at the board during the 49th reading group in the collaboratorium at Moffitt. Since then, I’ve blogged about Archetti’s work from EGT 47 and Robert, Jacob, David and I have started working on continuations of it. I also featured ideas from EGT 48 and 49 in my discussion of evolutionary game theory without interactions and experimental partitioning of the fitness function.
Reading groups are announced ahead of time through an email list and people are welcome to join via Google Hangouts. If you’d like to be added to the list then send me an email or reply to this post. See you at the next milestone!
