Overcoming the Tragedy of the Commune in the Hawk-Dove game through Conventional Coding

Joachim De Beule

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper

Samenvatting

In the Hawk-Dove game, where two individuals compete over a resource,
fully cooperating or ``dove''-like behavior is vulnerable to
invasion by defecting or ``hawk''-like behavior, a fact also known
as the ``tragedy of the commune''. This tragedy can be overcome by
so-called ``bourgeois'' or ``anarchist'' players which
conventionally base their behavior on an external sign. However, it
is not a-priori clear how such behavior could evolve through natural
selection alone. In this paper it is shown, through simulations,
that it can be the result of a more general strategy by which
adaptive agents learn and establish a globally shared conventional
code.
