Research Summary

Main Underlying Research Theme -- Understanding complex real-world strategic decision-making systems naturally as models that involve populations of learning agents (coevolutionary systems):

Unified Framework for Complex Coevolutionary Systems -- Uncover principle structures underlying agent behaviors (digraph theory) through sampling processes modeling agent learning (Markov chains) for precise characterizations of coevolution.

Complete Characterization of Complex Coevolutionary Dynamics -- Develop new tools to study coevolutionary systems that generate complex (including chaotic) dynamics (dynamical systems theory).

Emergence of Macro-scale Behaviors from Micro-scale structures -- (Multi-agent systems) simulation to study micro-scale conditions giving rise to macro-scale behaviors (evolution to cooperation) with nonlinear behavioral representation (neural networks).
