Graduate Student Seminar
Fine Hall 214

This talk will provide an introduction to several approaches for studying evolutionary games with continuous strategy spaces, using the problem of overfishing and sustainable management of fisheries as a motivating example. We will consider the role of both peer-to-peer and institutional mechanisms of reward and punishment to incentivize sustainable fishing practices. Mathematically, we can analyze these      social-ecological models using measure-valued ODEs and nonlocal transport equations.
