Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to studying evolution and learning dynamics in strategic interactions. Specifically, the Special Issue deal with setups in which agents are involved in strategic interactions, and they use plausible heuristics and/or methods to learn about the environment and/or about the behavior of others, and this information affect their behavior (as well as setups in which learning-like behavior is induced by natural selection). We encourage both theoretical contributions, as well as applied or experimental contributions that deal with wither economic applications (broadly defined) or biological applications. We are particularly interested in contributions applying plausible non-payoff-monotone learning dynamics (such as those induced by small samples, or by multi-dimensional learning).

Authors are invited to submit papers that have been rejected elsewhere alongside all reviews from prior submissions, details regarding changes in response to comments from prior submissions, and a declaration of honor that the provided reviews are authentic and complete. We welcome authors to submit their manuscripts for this Special Issue of Games.

For manuscripts submitted to this Special Issue, the corresponding author should declare (signed and dated) the following information in a cover letter.

The submitted reports (if attached to the submission) are complete and verbatim, and no report was suppressed;

The paper is no longer submitted to or under review at any other journal.
