About this book

The authors investigate the nonlinear dynamics of the self-regulation of social and economic behaviour, and of the closely related interactions between species in ecological communities. Replicator equations describe how successful strategies spread.

Media reviews
'... as a mathematical text on an important set of topics in theoretical biology, the book is superb. It is well organised and beautifully written. In choosing from the rich menu of mathematical topics broadly relevant to ecology, behaviour, evolution, and even theoretical immunology, it shows good taste.' The Times Higher Education Supplement '... [has] something for anyone interested in game models in organismal biology.' Marc Mangel, Nature 'The book is a must for any mathematician economist, or biologist working in Evolutionary Game Theory.' C. Alos-Ferrer, International Mathematical News 'This book can highly be recommended to mathematicians interested in applications in social sciences, biology, and population genetics.' Ethology '... an excellent publication that helps to bridge one of the gaps between biologists and mathematicians.' David Boukai, Folia Geobotanica
