Games of life : explorations in ecology, evolution, and behaviour by Karl Sigmund( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of genetics, population ecology, evolution and animal behaviour explains why scientific observations and insights can be structured as the rules of a survival game, and what happens when they are assembled on a computer or in the mind and allowed to run
The theory of evolution and dynamical systems : mathematical aspects of selection by Josef Hofbauer( Book )

32 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and German and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolutionary games and population dynamics by Josef Hofbauer( Book )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every form of behaviour is shaped by trial and error. Such stepwise adaptation can occur through individual learning or through natural selection, the basis of evolution. Since the work of Maynard Smith and others, it has been realised how game theory can model this process. Evolutionary game theory replaces the static solutions of classical game theory by a dynamical approach centred not on the concept of rational players but on the population dynamics of behavioural programmes. In 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 and thereby create new conditions which can alter the basis of their success, id est to enable us to understand the strategic and genetic foundations of the endless chronicle of invasions and extinctions which punctuate evolution. In short, evolutionary game theory describes when to escalate a conflict, how to elicit cooperation, why to expect a balance of the sexes, and how to understand natural selection in mathematical terms
Ergodic theory on compact spaces by Manfred Denker( Book )

19 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The calculus of selfishness by Karl Sigmund( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume looks at social dilemmas where cooperative motivations are subverted and self-interest becomes self-defeating. Sigmund, a pioneer in evolutionary game theory, uses simple and well-known game theory models to examine the foundations of collective action and the effects of reciprocity and reputation
Dynamical systems : proceedings of an IIASA (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis) Workshop on Mathematics of Dynamic Processes held at Sopron, Hungary, September 9-13, 1985 by IIASA Workshop on Mathematics of Dynamic Processes( Book )

13 editions published in 1987 in English and German and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The investigation of special topics in systems dynamics -uncertain dynamic processes, viability theory, nonlinear dynamics in models for biomathematics, inverse problems in control systems theory-has become a major issue at the System and Decision Sciences Research Program of the International Insti tute for Applied Systems Analysis. The above topics actually reflect two different perspectives in the investigation of dynamic processes. The first, motivated by control theory, is concerned with the properties of dynamic systems that are stable under vari ations in the systems' parameters. This allows us to specify classes of dynamic systems for which it is possible to construct and control a whole "tube" of trajectories assigned to a system with uncertain parameters and to resolve some inverse problems of control theory within numerically stable solution schemes. The second perspective is to investigate generic properties of dynamic systems that are due to nonlinearity (as bifurcations theory, chaotic behavior, stability properties, and related problems in the qualitative theory of differential systems). Special stress is given to the applications of non linear dynamic systems theory to biomathematics and ecoloey

Kurt Gödel : das Album = the album by Karl Sigmund( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time Magazine reihte ihn unter die hundert wichtigsten Personen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Die Harvard University verlieh ihm das Ehrendoktorat für die Entdeckung "der bedeutsamsten mathematischen Wahrheit des Jahrhunderts". Er gilt allgemein als der größte Logiker seit Aristoteles. Sein Freund Einstein ging, nach eigener Aussage, nur deshalb ans Institut, um Gödel auf dem Heimweg begleiten zu dürfen. Und John von Neumann, einer der Väter des Computers, schrieb: "Gödel ist tatsächlich absolut unersetzlich. Er ist der einzige Mathematiker, von dem ich das zu behaupten wage." Dieses Buch ist eine leichtverdauliche, einfache und anschauliche Einführung in Gödels Leben und Werk, gedacht für jene, die sich für die menschlichen und kulturellen Aspekte der Wissenschaft interessieren. Ausgangspunkt des Buches waren die Vorbereitungen zu einer Ausstellung über Kurt Gödel aus Anlass seines hundertsten Geburtstags. Eine Ausstellung hat etwas von einem Spaziergang an sich, und gerade das wollen wir bieten: einen Spaziergang mit Gödel. Albert Einstein genoss solche Spaziergänge sehr. Man kann also Gödel genießen. Time Magazine ranked him among the hundred most important persons of the twentieth century. Harvard University made him an honorary doctor "for the discovery of the most significant mathematical truth of the century". He is generally viewed as the greatest logician since Aristotle. His friend Einstein liked to say that he only went to the institute to have the privilege of walking back home with Kurt Gödel. And John von Neumann, one of the fathers of the computer, wrote: "Indeed Gödel is absolutely irreplaceable. He is the only mathematician about whom I dare make this assertion." This book wants to give a simple, intuitive and easily digestible introduction to Gödel's life and work, meant for readers interested in the human and cultural aspects of science. Its starting point were the preparations for an exhibition on Kurt Gödel, on
Sie nannten sich Der Wiener Kreis Exaktes Denken am Rand des Untergangs by Karl Sigmund( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in German and English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Wiener Kreis ist aus dem Geistesleben des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht wegzudenken. Anknüpfend an Russell und Einstein versucht ein Team von Mathematikern, Naturwissenschaftlern und Philosophen die Grundlagen einer wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung zu legen, im scharfen Gegenwind der reaktionären Politik der Zwischenkriegsjahre. Anschaulich, einfach und einprägsam stellt  Karl Sigmund eine der spannendsten Episoden der radikalen Moderne dar - einer Episode, die vom Nationalsozialismus zerstört wurde, aber im angelsächsischen Exil reiche Früchte trug. Viele der damals angerissenen Fragen haben heute noch ihre Auswirkungen: Es führt eine Linie von der symbolischen Logik Carnaps und Gödels zur Informatik, und die wissenschaftliche Weltauffassung ist so selbstverständlich geworden, dass wir sie kaum mehr wahrnehmen. Ein Buch für alle an der Kulturgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts Interessierten, das naturwissenschaftlich und geisteswissenschaftlich orientierte Leserinnen und Leser in gleichem Maß anspricht. Der Autor Prof. Karl Sigmund, Fakultät für Mathematik, Universität Wien und IIASA - International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Laxenburg, Österreich
