B.Sc. Thesis Project

The evolutionary emergence of cooperative behaviour in selfish (i.e. fitness-maximising) individuals is an interesting problem in theoretical evolution and remains an active area of research. My work will focus on the interdependency of network structures and cooperative behaviour. Specifically, I want to learn how traits like investment in a public goods game and propensity to form interaction links coevolve. To investigate this, I am working on a modified version of Benajmin Herdeanu's Hierarnet model.
