Yuzuru Sato obtained a Ph.D. in nonlinear physics and complex systems from the University of Tokyo in 2000. He received postdoctoral fellowships from JSPS (2000-2001), RIKEN (2001-2002), and Santa Fe Institute (2002-2006). Since the year 2006, he is an associate professor at RIES Complex Systems Group / Department of Mathematics at Hokkaido university. His research is focused on problems in the field of application of nonlinear dynamical systems and complex systems.

Lecture: “Asymmetric game dynamics and its applications”

When: wednesday,  31th October

Where: Sala Penal, Universidad del Desarrollo, campus Rector Ernesto Silva Bafalluy, Av. La Plaza 680, Las Condes.

Language: English

Abstract: Asymmetric game dynamics is a class of ODEs that describe learning in games, starting from microscopic stochastic learning [1]. Although individual players interact with their environment in a purely self-interested way, macroscopic behavior can be interpreted as game dynamics in this context. Applications to several explicit game interactions exhibits a diversity of nonlinear dynamical behaviors [2]. In this talk, we discuss several extensions of asymmetric game dynamics in terms of learning in game [3].
