Game Theory and Spatial Change

Research Team


We study models of theoretical models for competition for space and their applications. We define mobility in terms of the satisfaction of an agent with its spatial location. Agents compete for the space through a non-cooperative game by using mixed strategies. We are particularly interested to study the relation between Nash equilibrium and the winner strategy of a given model with mobility, and how the mobility can affect the results. The experiments show that mobility is an important variable concerning spatial games. When we change parameters that affect mobility, it may lead to the success of strategies away from Nash equilibrium.
